Takashi Murakami is a Japanese artist known for blurring the boundary between fine and commercial art. Often categorized alongside historic and contemporary artists working in the tradition of Pop Art, such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and Jeff Koons, Murakami's work has achieved a widespread level of fame beyond the art world. His innovative Superflat aestheticcombining classical Japanese art with contemporary Japanese pop culturehas led many to consider him one of the most innovative artists working today. Exploring the links between traditional printmaking techniques and Japanese manga in postwar society, Murakamis art acts as a cultural barometer with subversive undertones and imagery. My aesthetic sense was formed at a young age by what surrounded me: the narrow residential spaces of Japan and the mental escapes from those spaces that took the forms of manga and anime, he reflected.
Born on February 1, 1962 in Tokyo, Japan, where he continues to live and work, Murakami has embraced commerce through the founding of Kaikai Kiki Co. An artist management agency and studio based in both New York and Munich. The item "TAKASHI MURAKAMI COMPLEXCON 2017 SKATE DECK SET" is in sale since Wednesday, November 8, 2017.
