Biography of Takashi Murakami (b.1963)

Hello all and a happy Tuesday to all of you may today bring us all the happiness and joy that we all hope for in our lives. OK, back to today’s post edition and in my quest to write about different “as promise” famous artists from different countries, I’ve choose to feature this famous painter from Japan. He is non-other than the famous Takashi Murakami and here is his biography and a few of his paintings. Enjoy all……

Takashi Murakami was born 1963 in Tokyo, Japan. Murakami attended the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, initially studying more traditional Japanese art. He is a prolific contemporary Japanese
artist who works in both fine arts media, such as painting as well as digital and commercial media. He borrows popular themes from mass media and pop culture, and turns them into huge sculptures, “Superflat” paintings, or marketable commercial goods such as figurines of phone candles. In 2008, Takashi Murakami made Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” list, the only visual artist included.
