Takashi Murakami - Flower Power

COSTA MESA—Join us in Costa Mesa for an electric exhibition by one of the world’s most famous contemporary artists—Takashi Murakami. This extraordinary presentation features the artist’s signature FLOWER works along with other highly collectible works of art.

Murakami has dubbed this style “Superflat,” which is a tribute to the two-dimensional style of some Japanese cartoons. Murakami has also explained the style as a reference to such high-tech devices as flat-screen televisions and computer monitors. The term also reflects the smashing of distinctions between fine art and commercial art, between high culture and low. Murakami told Interview, “In Japan, there is no high and there is no low. It’s all flat.”

Murakami’s style is an amalgam of his Western predecessors, Andy Warhol, Claus Oldenberg and Roy Lichtenstein, as well as Japanese predecessors and contemporaries of anime and manga. ArtNews reported Murakami’s work as being among the most valued in the world.

We look forward to seeing you in Costa Mesa on June 8 for Murakami, “Flower Power.”
