Takashi Murakami, Japanese painter and sculptor, builds a bridge between art and commerce. He is often compared to artists like Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst or Jeff Koons, who are in the tradition of Pop Art. Murakami combines classic Japanese art with the country's contemporary pop culture. His aesthetics, which he called "super flat", made him one of the most innovative artists of the present day. With his very graphic works, which are characterized by bright colors, he explores the connections between traditional print graphics and the comics of Japanese post-war society. Although the works seem playful at first glance, Murakami's art with its hidden, subversive undertones acts as a social criticism. Born on February 1, 1962 in the Japanese capital Tokyo, where he continues to live and work, Murakami also demonstrated business acumen with the founding of the Kaikai Kiki Co. agency. The company serves the production and distribution of its art objects and also represents younger artists. Murakami also worked with the Louis Vuitton fashion label, pioneering the marketing of art.
