asian art bad-ass: Takashi Murakami

He is the artist who made the Kanye West bear, the cover of Graduation(see above), and his trippy website called Universecity.(LOL ITS UNVERSITY)

DISCLAIMER: I KNOW SHIT ABOUT FASHION OR ART

Takashi Murakami is a self proclaimed Otaku(LOL NERD). Murakami is also a contemporary artist. What do you get when you mix those 2 together?

Bad-assery(or is it bad-ass ness?). He kicks ass in a few ways that is not listed in this chart.

He is hella influential in the art scene(He was the only visual artist to make it to the time 100), and created a movement called “superflat“. Superflat is heavily influenced by Anime and Manga(esp. Hayao Miyazaki which created works of testicular art such as Pom Poko).

That may be or not be their ballsacks. More likely the former.

“Murakami’s style, called Superflat, is characterized by flat planes of color and graphic images involving a character style derived from anime and manga. Superflat is an artistic style that comments on otaku lifestyle and subculture, as well as consumerism and sexual fetishism.” from Wikipedia

He takes “low” art and repackages it and sells it to the highest bidder at “high” art auctions such as Christie’s, like Andy Warhol. Now Andy Warhol rates pretty high on the bad-assery scale, he has a cool band named after him(I HOPE THIS IS NOT OUR 15 MINUTES). That’s pretty bad-ass as Murakami’s works are some of the most desired in the world. Pretty bad-ass considering he can make alot of money doing his thang, y’know what I mean. Doing wahhht he lieks and making loadZ of cash money records is bad-ass, dog.

He sold a figure of a anime-syled charecter with blond hair(LIKE SUPER SAIYIN GOKU, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING?) pleasuring himself (i. e. JACKING THE FUCK OFF), and ejaculating a white lasso like object, holding the rope in the style of a cowboy. You have to see it for yourself. (EXTREMELY NOT SAFE FOR WORK) It was only expected to sell at 3,000,00 to 4,000,000 dollars which is basically 12,000,000 chicken McNuggets. However it sold for a fucking 16,000,000 dollars which is like 64,000,000 Chikin MikuNegetto. Selling a figure of a cumming Goku, which rigid rope-cum for 16 million is bad-ass. The piece is named “My Lonesome Cowboy” which is a very suggestive name. The name’s even bad-ass. Another one is of a female called “Hiropon” which means “I’ don’t know Japanese” in english. This is similiar in style to “My Lonesome Cowboy” and is NSFW too. To view it, click here.

You know what else is bad-ass? Purses. Bitches love purses.

Bitches love the Louis Vuitton.

Bitches love the Louis Vuitton.

They especially love Louis Vuitton purses. They’ll love a man who can design Louis Vuitton purses. You know who that man is?

The Straight-Up Motherfucking OG that designs GANG STAR purses?

This Guy.

(I love Blingees, they’re pretty bad ass too. Click here to make a Blingee and here to submit your Emo Blingee in the Best Emo Blingee contest or sign into to the many other Blingee contest like Best Anime Blingee, Best Gangster Blingee, Best Artistic Blingie(Is that an oxymoron?) etc.!)

If I was a girl, Id want one too.

Hmm, they are nice and quite stylish indeed. He is so bad-ass that people while buy his shit for 5,000 dollars.

    Note that if you want to save Dog, and you can save him (you need at
    least 50 in Speech to even get him to talk down), you don’t have to shut the valves off.
    Necessary legal information contained in these legal documents is needed to make or
    break many cases. Kessler is home to one of the Air Force’s larger medical units as well
    as its large fleet of planes, known as ‘hurricane hunters,’ that are used to monitor meteorological
    conditions.
