Takashi Murakami’s Retrospective

by

Born in Tokyo in 1962, Takashi Murakami is one of the most influential artists of Japan.

He was considered the Japanese Andy Warhol, but in his artworks in place of Marilyn Monroe or Campbell’s Soup, there is a representation of contemporary popular culture in the forms of anime and manga, together with American Pop Art and European Surrealism.

From February 17 through May 31 2009, his “Superflat” style, as he himself defines it in his own writings, is on exibition at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.
