Takashi Murakami created some plush versions of his iconic flower spheres for Art Basel in Miami, and also recently announced plans to open a KaiKai Kiki animation studio in Hollywood!
I am loving the costume he made for himself out of the flowers (check out his green "stem" tights!). I'd also like to be the first to apply for a job at the KaiKai Kiki animation studio opening up in Hollywood next Summer! If you were lucky enough to attend the ©Murakami shows in LA or Brooklyn, you probably saw the teaser for Murakami's Kai Kai & Kiki character's full length animated film. It had a taste of some of the Miyazaki backgrounds, and Murakami cites him as an influence. I am SO excited to see what amazing projects come out of his new studio!
