About Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami (Japanese, b. 1962) is internationally renowned for his playful negotiation of several styles and traditions. Combining the 19th-century Japanese painting style known as Nihonga–itself a mixture of Eastern and Western styles–with contemporary manga, anime, Japanese pop culture, as well as so-called “fine art,” Murakami’s work is as prolific as it is rooted in a mixtures of places and times. Coining the term “Superflat” to describe his and other contemporary Japanese art, Murakami’s unabashed glossy superficialism is not to be taken, ironically, at face value. Underpinned by a sharp wit and a keen awareness of how contemporary visual culture operates, his works’ shiny attractiveness engages in a visual commentary on different histories of art and the nature of contemporary consumer practices. Murakami is the founder and President of the art management corporation, Kaikai Kiki Co. Ltd.
