Super Flat art style sweeping Japan!

I have been following a style of art that has been around for a while but is getting more and more popular. It is called Super Flat Style and I am seeing more of it in mainstream U.S. media. This Japanese art movement is very stylized and yet very compelling in it's execution and technique.

Takashi Murakami is heading up a wonderful exhibit at the Japan Society in New York. I was lucky enough to see a similar exhibit in Tokyo before the Super Flat style became popular.

Influenced by ancient woodblock prints and now by the age of Anime, Manga and Hentai it is some of sexiest images you will have the pleasure of experiencing. Even some of the very dark concepts are difficult to look away from and I LOVE art that can hold and capture in that way.

If you get a chance search out this art style, you won't be disappointed for your efforts.
