Jellyfish Eyes

Takashi Murakami, Jellyfish Eyes, 2004 is an original lithograph print that is signed and numbered from the edition of 300.  Jellyfish Eyes is colorful and vivid. The work’s subject matter evokes a sense of anxiety as it references Japanese kaijū (monster) movies, a genre that inspired the artist to make a film in 2013 that shares its title with the works of this series.

Takashi Murakami is internationally renowned for his playful negotiation of various artistic styles and traditions. Often combining Nihonga, a 19th-century Japanese painting style, with contemporary manga and Japanese pop culture, Murakami’s work is underpinned by a sharp wit. Drawing on his keen awareness of art history and contemporary visual culture, Murakami engages in a layered evaluation on consumer practices and contemporary life. Murakami coined the term “Superflat” to describe the cultural commentary and aesthetic preferences characteristic of his work and other contemporary Japanese art.
