Takashi Murakami: Takashi Murakami was born in Tokyo, Japan. In 1983 he formed an artistic group called Superflat with several other young artists. Supre-flat is a style that combines flat 2-dimensional imagery and 3 dimensional objects, often blurring any distinction between high and low arts, referencing Pop Art and using mass media imagery. He also has a playful sense of humor as seen in his “Keroppi” series; Keroppi is a Sanrio character, like Hello Kitty….

The indigenous art of Australia is a cultural form that has been developed by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, who are the original inhabitants of the Australian continent and nearby islands. The forms have changed over time, but their essence has remained the same: to form a link between ancient traditions and contemporary culture.

The art of Australia is not only found in galleries and museums, but it can also be seen on the streets. We have collected 20 examples of street art from around the world, including 5 examples from Australia.

As more and more people want to get involved in graffiti, the old confrontational attitudes are disappearing. What matters most is quality, skill and ideas. For example, a few days ago a new street artist was at work on a large building in Aoyama: his name is Os Gemeos (Portuguese for “The Twins”), and he is half of the Brazilian duo Os Gêmeos.

The twins have been working with spray paint since they were teenagers. In Brazil, they are famous as graffiti artists – they have even painted the exterior of São Paulo’s subway trains.

They have also done many other kinds of art, including giant public murals like this one called “Olympic Games,” which was created for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.

Apparently Os Gemeos will be creating another mural in Tokyo too.
