Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami was born in Tokyo in 1962. Inspired by anime, Takashi Murakami’s artwork borders the line between fine and commercial art. Takashi Murakami’s paintings go through several phases, including design, computer detailing, print, and multilayered paint applications. Due to the length of time it takes, Murakami employs assistants who help him complete his works. He uses bright colors and cheerful imagery, occasionally delving into darker themes.
The emotional strain between children and adults is a key element of Takashi Murakami’s paintings, a theme influenced by Steven Spielberg films. In 2003, Murakami created a line of popular handbags for Louis Vuitton that sold out before they even hit the shelves. Takashi Murakami prints are found on shirts, postcards, and other novelty items.
