Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami is a Japanese contemporary artist that is known for blurring the lines between high and low art, combining traditional aesthetic of Japanese art with popular culture. Murakami coined and produced the term ‘superflat’, which reflects his own artistic style. He is also the founder and president of Kaikai Kiki Co and Biannual Art Fair Geisai, whom he manages several young artists. Murakami has collaborated with the likes of Billionaire Boys Club, Kaws, Pharrell Williams, Louis Vuitton, and Kanye West.
