Just because assault weapons are highly instrumental doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have STYLE.

Of course, I’m kidding.  This is WRONG.

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).
