Born in 1962 in Tokyo, Japan.

Murakami is a Japanese contemporary art star. He is the king of kitsch “kawaii” in his own original way. 

He claims to be a Warhol-like figure and a Pop Art heir, but he also communicates a Japanese identity.

He was exhibited in the Château de Versailles in 2010 and has beat all records in auction houses.

His editions « Kaikai kiki » and his prints are now cult items.
