Takashi Murakami

Contemporary Artist

Takashi Murakami is known for his “Superflat” style and is known as the “andy Warhol” of Japan. Murakami was recently featured alongside Andy Warhol at the BYU Museum of Art in a show called THINK FLAT: The Art of Andy Warhol and Takashi Murakami.

Takashi has perpetuated this tradition by rejecting what society dictates as high or low in consumerism art.  He disempowers hierarchies, but more importantly his art comes with a discreet caution: infatuation with consumerism, stardom and virtual worlds has the potential to undermine one’s sense of reality and connection with human beings. Murakami’s work reveals the paradoxes inherent in our flat world as well as the inherent delights and perils.”
