An article on an art show of the work of Takashi Murakami, a japanese pop artist, who created the movement known as SUPERFLAT. He is also making money designing bags for Louis Vuitton. (ironic isn’t it?) The artshow claims to chart a lineage from the atomic bomb blast to the Hello Kitty! phenomenon.
Owes a lot to Andy Warhol, but also the East Village scene of the 1980s (Kenny Scharf, Keith Haring).
