Takashi Murakami

Jellyfish Eyes - Black 4

Takashi Murakami is a contemporary Japanese artist who tries to blur the boundaries between high and low art, and uses both painting and digital techniques. He uses popular themes from mass media and pop culture, then turns them into large sculptures, "Superflat" paintings, or marketable commercial goods such as figurines or phone caddies. 

Flower Matango, Fiberglass Sculpture

Murakami has even teemed up with Louis Vuitton to create a special edition of bags.
