About the WorkIn “Nirvana” Kiki, the snaggle-toothed "unrefined" twin to Kaikai seems to metamorphose into the "beautiful" Kaikai, but still retains a sense of imperfection; it’s as if Kiki went through Seth Brundle's tele-pod and didn't come out quite right on the other side, and yet seems quite happy about it, i.e.: the "recombination" has achieved Nirvana (the perfection of imperfection). “Nirvana” is a 26 x 51.75 – inch hand-signed offset lithograph on paper.
About the Artist
Takashi Murakami was born in Tokyo, Japan on February 1, 1962. His influence for art derives from his mother, who studied needlepoint and designed textiles. Murakami knew he wanted to be an artist when he grew up, and had always taken a large interest in animation and comics. He studied art throughout much of his adolescence, and applied to study at Tokyo National University. He was accepted and later received his Ph.D. in Fine Arts and Music, in which he learned “Nihong”, or traditional Japanese painting. After his studies, Murakami moved to New York in 1994 and was exposed to, and inspired by, Western contemporary artists like Jeff Koons.
