Takashi Murakami

Japanese artist Takashi Murakami's iconic anime-inspired characters and graphic style have been featured in high-profile collaborations across the fashion, art, and music industries. In the early 2000s, Murakami's style captivated the imagination of younger artists and spurred an art movement in Japan that came to be known as 'Superflat’.

Between 2002 and 2015, Murakami famously collaborated with Louis Vuitton to redesign the brand's iconic logo print in his signature neon colour palette, and to incorporate his smiling flowers and big-eared characters into the brand's luxury bags. He has also produced collaborations with streetwear brands such as Supreme.
