Welcome to Art Lust, sponsored by Arts Origin. This episode, we tackle Stronger by Takashi Murakami. That’s the world renowned Japanese artist, famous for the Superflat style. Takashi palls around with rock stars like Kanye West and produces Louie Vuitton campaigns and handbags by redefining the Japanese artistry.
But his work is cartoony, let's take a look. Here is Stronger. Oh yeah, this piece incorporates Takashi’s Superflat anime style into this Kanye West album cover. For some reason the avatar he used for the Kanye West cover is very similar to the international pedophile bear. Go figure.
Takashi has been compared to AndyWarhol in the blurring of the line between commercial art and art, art. He cranks out many of his art pieces as key chains and t-shirts. He is still manages to sell giant statues of ejaculating anime figures like this at Sotherbee for $15.2 million. If you break it, you bought it.
