Murakami: Unfamiliar People―Swelling of Monsterized Human Ego
This fresh look at artist Takashi Murakami takes on the “monstrous” themes of rampant consumerism, human fallibility, and the perils of life in the digital fast lane, in works from the past decade.
One of Japan’s leading contemporary artists, Takashi Murakami (b. 1962) is known for a wide-ranging practice that encompasses not only fine art but fashion, consumer products, curation, and entertainment. Founder of the Superflat movement, Murakami makes art that is larger than life, boldly coloured, and buoyant, with a Pop sensibility that draws inspiration from anime and manga.
The book features lavish colour illustrations, a plastic jacket, dyed edges, and four gatefolds.
