Takashi Murakami (村上隆, Murakami Takashi?, born 1 February 1962 in Tokyo) is a prolific contemporary Japanese artist.Murakami works in both fine arts media, such as painting; as well as digital and commercial media. He attempts to blur the boundaries between high and low art. He appropriates popular themes from mass media and pop culture, then turns them into thirty-foot sculptures, “Superflat” paintings, or marketable commercial goods such as figurines or phone caddies.
