Chiho Aoshima

Japanese Post-ModernismI love Pop Art
I love Japanesque things.
I love the Superflat.
Chiho Aoshima was part of Takashi Murakami's design collective and has created some beautiful and poignant works in the Superflat, Murakami's self-proclaimed art movement. If you've never heard of it, Superflat is a pop art movement that among other things, relates to the "shallow emptiness of Japanese consumer culture"(Murakami). Although Murakami started this movement in the early 2K's, Aoshima is doing gorgeous and important things in the art world.
Check out more of her work.
