일본 현대 미술과 문화의 상징적인 인물로 여겨지는 무라카미 타카시(b. 1962)는 예술가큐레이터이론가제품 디자이너사업가 등 다양한 역할을 넘나들며 그만의 독창적 세계를 확립해왔다특히 2000년에 발표한 슈퍼플랫(Superflat)” 양식은 무라카미의 경력을 통틀어 가장 중요한 예술 개념일 뿐만 아니라일본 포스트 모던 미술에 가장 의미 있는 형식으로 평가된다슈퍼플랫은 일본 전통 회화 니혼가의 정체성으로 일컫는 평면성과 만화와 애니메이션에 대한 무라카미의 각별한 애정이 결합되어 탄생된 일본 팝 아트이다무라카미는 이 새로운 시각 언어를 통해 제2차 세계대전이 낳은 일본인 특유의 심리와 문화적 특징을 반영할 뿐만 아니라, “저급미술과 고급” 미술로 양분된 체계를 허무는데 집중했다특히 일본 사회에 만연한 소비문화무분별한 서구화성 도착 현상 등과 같은 사회 문화적 이슈들을 반영하며 그의 목소리를 드러냈다

Mr. DOB, 웃는 꽃키티 등 다양한 캐릭터들의 끝없는 반복성을 통해 구축된 그의 독특한 스타일은 세계적으로 가장 사랑받은 예술 형식 중 하나이기도 하다무라카미의 세계는 끊임없이 성장하고 있으며 동시대 작가들에게 예술가로서의 태도와 작품 세계에 대해 무궁무진한 영향을 끼치고 있다또한 무라카미 타카시는 1996년 도쿄에서 히로폰 팩토리로 시작한 미술품 제작 및 예술인 관리 법인인 카이카이 키키(Kaikai Kiki)”를 운영하고 있다

 

As the most symbolic figure of Japanese contemporary art and culture, Takashi Murakami (b. 1962) has played multiple roles as artist, curator, theorist, product designer, and businessman. In 2000, Murakami introduced the term “Superflat,” which served as the utmost concept of his artistic career as well as the postmodern art movement in Japan. Blending his knowledge and technique with traditional Japanese paintings, “Nihonga,” he promoted the importance of “flatness” in his works and invented a new pop-art style of Superflat that combined his love for manga and anime. Through this new visual language, Murakami not only depicted Japanese’s psychological conditions affected by the World War II, but also suggested there were no borders between “low” and “high” art, or Japan’s otaku culture and fine art.

Establishing a vibrant creative style that is widely celebrated using endless repetitions of his iconic characters including Mr. DOB, smiling flowers, and Kitty, Murakami continues to practice his experiment with diverse flattened forms and influence many contemporary artists. His works along with other emerging Japanese artists are managed by Kaikai Kiki, an art art production and artist management corporation that he launched in 1996.
