Murakami.Flowers

Murakami.Flowers is a series of 11,664 pixelated dot flower art with unique traits and expressions created by Takashi Murakami , a famous Japanese artist, known for his aesthetic for blurring the lines between traditional Japanese art and modern pop culture.  [3][4]

Murakami.Flowers is an attempt to generate a worldview that joins the contemporary art world and the new NFT art or digital art community. Its mission is to connect it with those who inhabit the worlds of NFT and DAO. [3]

Hublot, a Swiss luxury watch company also launched two lines of watches with the Murakami.Flowers as a part of the NFT launch. [6]

Company

Kaikai Kiki Co is Takashi Murakami's company which is producing the Murakami.Flower. The company has also created numerous artworks, sculptures, CGI live-action films, TV-series-style animations, and many more. They are also involved in the world of luxury fashion by collaborating with famous and powerful brands, like Louis Vuitton, Vans, Vogüé, Suprême and many other famous brands. [9]

Overview

The Murakami.Flowers is Takashi's first NFT Project. The Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collection features 11,664 flowers that showcase Takashi’s famous artworks. It is a collection of 2D pixelated 12-petal flowers with rare expressions, traits, and backgrounds.

The work is being developed with the number 108 as the keyword, a combination of 108 backgrounds and flower colors make up a field, and there are 108 fields, each field has 108 flower images, resulting in 11,664 flower images in total. The number 108 is a reference to bonnō, or earthly temptations.
