Known for his brightly coloured and cheerful works, by which Japanese popular culture and the country’s rich artistic legacy merge, Takashi Murakami has loved astronomical fame within the contemporary art world. His Pop Art-like aesthetics catapulted modern Japanese obsessions similar to anime into the mainstream art world. Inspired by his work as a extremely paid commercial illustrator in New York, Andy Warhol’s screen-printed images of everyday consumer objects and visible imagery from mainstream media would come to define the Pop Art motion. As reigning king, he helped blur the boundaries between high and low art, bringing what was normally considered “commercial” into the fantastic art lexicon.
