Ironically, Mr. was previously mentored by none other then Murakami himself. Murakami’s signature “Superflat” style is a melding of both high and low art, effectively blurring the lines. Mr.’s style is perhaps best described as a manga meets sexuality style of art. Together both of these marquee artists have captivated the attention of many art lovers around the world.
