Takashi Murakami

One of the most acclaimed artists to emerge from postwar Asia, Takashi Murakami created a synthesis of fine art and popular culture, particularly his use of a boldly graphic and colourful anime and manga cartoon style. Murakami became famous in the 1990s for his 'Superflat' theory and for organizing the paradigmatic exhibition of that title, which linked the origins of contemporary Japanese visual culture to historical Japanese art. His output includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, animations, and collaborations with brands such as Louis Vuitton.
