Hello Japan – hello Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami is a pop artist from Japan. His artwork is concentrated and it covers a beautiful range of colors. Smiling flowers, blinking eyes, colorful mushrooms are some of the imagery he commonly uses creating an innocent Murakami pop art.
Now, let’s have a go at making your own Murakami style flowers! A picture packed with smiling flowers overlapping each other. The flowers are symmetrical, usually of the same shape but different sizes.

Here they are some more detailed instructions below! Have fun!

  1. Draw symmetrical flowers. Repeat your motif.
  2. Sometimes it becomes difficult to repeat the motif. Create different types of flowers. Make it intense, overlapping and smiling. Try to create in your drawing the dense feeling.
  3. Overlap them. Create flowers of different sizes.
  4. Play with colors. Use colors that go with each other.
  5. Fill the entire space of paper by repeating and multiplying your image.
