Super Flat

Japanese people accept that art and commerce will be blended; and, in fact, they are surprised by the rigid and pretentious Western hierarchy of ‘high art.’  – Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami, has made his final pit-stop over in Spain at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao after stops in Los Angeles, New York and Germany.With a complete selection of over 90 works in different media he has created a dizzying world filled with mood flowers, singing moss, magic mushrooms and morphing creatures and  he didn’t stop at the museum. So imagine an entire city packaged with Murakami’s bright palette of pop, the flatness of traditional Japanese art and some Surrealist movement elements.

Now I’m waiting for a jellyfish eyed plain to take me there.
