Most of us know Takashi Murakami as the Japanese contemporary artist, working on fine arts media such as paintings and sculptures, as well as commercial media such as fashion, merchandise and animation. He is known for the blurring lines between high and low arts. Takashi coined the term superflat, which describes both the aesthetic characteristics of the Japanese artistic tradition and the nature of post-war Japanese culture and society, and is also used for Murakami’s own artistic style and that of other Japanese artists he has influenced.
For the second time, Murakami has joined the Billionaire Boys Club for a joint project. The collection consists of short-sleeved tees and crewnecks, giving us the option of not paying thousands of dollars for Murakami’s artwork. This specific collection showcases pieces from Murakami’s Ensō series.
The collection will be available at Billionaire Boys Club’s New York flagship store and website on March 25.
