One of Asia’s most acclaimed contemporary artists, Takashi Murakami has been heralded by the New Yorker as “Japan’s answer to Andy Warhol.” Adopting the Pop Art principle of mixing high art with low culture, Murakami’s instantly recognisable style is distinctly Asian – where Warhol turned to Coca-Cola and Campbell’s soup. Murakami bridges the gap between Fine Art and Pop Art by uniting elements of Japanese anime and manga with traditional Japanese nihonga and Ukiyo-e woodcuts. Murakami’s ‘Jocular Clan’ series displays his characteristic ‘Superflat’, colourful 2D style. It is a playful collection of Japanese inspired, cartoon-like characters who certainly live up to their clan’s cheerful name – the word ‘jocular’ is used to describe someone who is happy and likes to make jokes.
