    About This Piece

    Introducing “Dokuro Silver” by the renowned Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami, a master at transcending the boundaries between high and low art. Hailing as one of the most celebrated artists emerging from post-war Asia, Murakami’s work is a captivating blend of pop culture, history, and fine art.

    A signed limited edition print numbered 23/700 from 2000, Murakami’s genius shines through. This offset lithograph, crafted with intricate precision, exemplifies his unique approach to art. Murakami’s art blurs the lines between different periods and styles but also defies the traditional confines of the art world. His work seamlessly navigates between galleries, studios, art fairs, and media.

    Takashi Murakami started his artistic journey with a spirit of social criticism stemming from his dissatisfaction with contemporary art in Japan. He felt art culture was increasingly losing its identity to Western influences. To counter this, he developed his distinctive style, characterised by repeated motifs and transforming characters in all his creations. His art marries the worlds of pop culture, history, and fine art, creating a rich tapestry of visual storytelling.

    Murakami once expressed, “We want to see the newest things… to see the future, even if only momentarily.” This relentless pursuit of the cutting edge defines his artistic vision.

    “Dokuro Silver” embodies Murakami’s concept of Superflat, a term he coined in 2001 that quickly became an influential art movement. Superflat merges traditional Japanese art aesthetics, elements from pop culture, and flat, glossy surfaces, resulting in both cute, satirical, psychedelic and thought-provoking.

    The artwork measures 28 x 28.5 inches and is in excellent condition, professionally framed to enhance its visual impact. It comes with a BHP Collectibles Certificate of Authenticity, ensuring its provenance. We offer free postage and packaging within the UK, with worldwide shipping options available upon inquiry.

    Don’t miss the chance to own a piece of Takashi Murakami’s artistry—a fusion of tradition and contemporary vision that challenges the boundaries of art.
