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.

He is also the founder and president of Kaikai Kiki Co and Biannual Art Fair Geisai, whom he manages several young artists.
