The present work by Takashi Murakami, renowned for his super-charged mix of Pop, animé, and otaku within a highly-stylised picture-plane, layers a range of Japanese cultural and religious influences. Murakami is the founder of the postmodern art movement, “Superflat, ” which combines elements of Japanese culture with the flattening of the image, which recalls earlier Japanese printmaking from the 19th century.
This work is signed and numbered in black ink, recto, and titled on the bottom edge, recto. Published by Kaikai Kiki Co. Ltd., Tokyo and sold unframed in excellent condition.
