Aya Takano is a member of the Japanese Superflat movement. Born in Saitama, Japan, Takano spent most of her childhood reading science fiction books and magazines in her father’s library. Fascinated by the exotic animals and landforms, Takano turned them into the themes of her futuristic artworks. Osamu Tezuka’s sci-fi manga also had a lasting impact on Takano’s dreamy perceptions of the world.
Not a bad few days here for our friend, David Choe. Yesterday was a piece of art for Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, and today we got this picture of Choe hanging out with contemporary art giant, and the master of the Superflat style, Japan’s Takashi Murakami.
We know David Choe likes a good collaboration, so we can only wonder: Is there a Choe x Murakami collaboration in the works? We think we would like to see what would come of that…
Can’t go wrong with a G-Shock, and then we kind of think you can’t go wrong with a Murakami, and then you combine the two, you get a watch people are going to seek out. Here in lies the problem: only 300 will be made and it will be released on September 11th. Translation: we, you, us, we ain’t going to get this watch.
