Takashi Murakami is often known as the ‘Warhol of Japan’ as his creations have made the same explosive pop-art impression as the moniker suggests. He has been a powerhouse in the art and collectible retailing world over his 40-year career, which has seen his cartoon-flower designs reach every corner of the globe. Sometimes referred to as the artist who “does the cute flowers,” but with a design aesthetic that is so much more, his prints, sculptures, plushies, keychains, t-shirts, and a host of other collectibles have traversed both the fine and high art worlds. With extensive merchandising and collectable success in the commercial world, he’s collaborated with celebrities and luxury brands alike. Moving into modernity with a vast Instagram following, he is truly an enduring and contemporary name in art that remains as recognisable and relevant as ever.
Fellow artists and art experts acknowledge Murakami to have pioneered the ‘Superflat’ art movement that combines classical Japanese art with modern Japanese pop culture.
