Takashi Murakami: Flowers of Hope
Flowers of Hope is a limited-edition print featuring Takashi Murakami’s distinctive multicolored smiling flowers. This motif first appeared in his work in 1995 and is inspired by his training in nihonga (traditional Japanese painting), which uses nature as its subject, including the moon, wind, snow, and flowers. Drawing from this practice, as well as sci-fi, anime, and the global art market, Murakami creates paintings, sculptures, and films populated by iconic motifs and mutating characters of his own creation. His wide-ranging oeuvre embodies the intersection of pop culture, history, and fine art.
