About the publication

Trained in traditional Japanese art and influenced by Western contemporary art, Takashi Murakami has found a field of expression at the crossing between Hokusai prints and otaku, a form of underground pop culture steeped in manga imagination.
It was in 2002 that the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain revealed this astonishing artist. The catalog published for the exhibition uncovers a strange, magical, imaginary world where the characters of Mr. DOB, Ovale, Kiki, and Kaikai and the recurring themes of mushrooms, eyes, and flowers portray a style truly “made in Japan.”
