Hailing from the Kaikai Kiki collective – the ‘factory’ created by Japanese superstar artist Takashi Murakami, Mr. is a young Japanese artist who has gradually been moving out of the shadow of his mentor. As an exemplar of such Japanese concepts as kawaii (cuteness) and lolicom (a shortened version of the English phrase Lolita Complex), Mr. is on one end of a spectrum of work, which Murakami has dubbed Superflat and whose other extreme encompasses cartoonish narratives, which lovingly describe the wreckage of nuclear apocalypses and violent cosmic battles.
