He has been noted and, at the same time, criticized for his culturally intense style of contemporary art. His critics argue that he “sells out” by taking a commercial approach to art and creating a style of pseudo-Japanese pop culture. Reeling from the reviews, Takashi Murakami becomes an iconic contributor to contemporary art with his invented style called “superflat,” which is a theory based on the flat, 2-D images of Japanese style manga and anime. Murakami has an extensive collection of contemporary paintings with average prices of $1.8 million per work. His record-breaking painting sold at auction for $4.2 million, called Tin Castle (1998).
