Superflat

Definition
a concept being proposed by artist Takashi Murakami, whose paintings deal with two dimensional spatiality rendered somewhere between traditional Japanese painting and modern anime. The phrase, though coined by Murakami for his art, has recently drawn attention from young scholars due to its connotations: ‘devoid of perspective and devoid of hierarchy, all existing equally and simultaneously.’

Artists

Book Application

characteristics of superflat art that resounded with me was the stroke around everything that take away the depth. I took a page which had a washed out look to it and added the black stroke connecting parts from the perceived background with the foreground to intertwine them.
