Takashi Murakami Releases Exclusive Art Print in Collaboration With Absolut Art

Proceeds from the limited-edition print will be donated to support The Kitchen.

Renowned Japanese artist, Takashi Murakami evokes sentiments of bliss and happiness through his highly-popularized works of art that seamlessly merges commercial imagery, anime, manga, and traditional Japanese styles and subjects. Using his artwork as a force for good, Murakami in partnership with Absolut Art will be releasing an exclusive limited-edition print signed by the visionary talent to benefit The Kitchen. 

To commemorate The Kitchen’s 50th anniversary and celebrate the New York-based nonprofit’s longstanding commitment to showcasing innovative works of artists across various disciplines, proceeds from the Murakami print, dubbed, Thank You for the Wonderful Destiny will be donated to support the beloved space’s renovations. “I truly love prints and edition works. I am very passionately involved in artwork editions that can stimulate us in the context of something like a mind game. This edition was also produced with such enthusiasm,” says Takashi Murakami.

As a way to support this initiative and create opportunities for innovative artists forging new ground, 100 of the signed prints priced at $1,000 USD will further the advancement of the arts organization and its mission to champion all forms of art. “Takashi Murakami’s ability to elicit joy and happiness while simultaneously helping to democratize the art world perfectly embodies the spirit of Absolut Art where we strive to make art more accessible and enjoyable for both first time buyers, and seasoned collectors around the world,” says Absolut Art Global Creative Director, Michelle Grey. This charitable print continues Absolut Art’s long history of giving back to artists, causes, and arts organizations.

To cop Murakami’s limited-edition print head to Absolut Art’s site to sign up before Thank You for the Wonderful Destiny drops on July 15.
