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).
