Japanese artist Takashi Murakami’s artwork references both Japanese popular culture and Japanese traditional art. He also works in fashion design and with art fairs and is a keen supporter of young emerging artists. A true all-rounder!

Murakami’s smiling flower face motif will be our focus today! We are going to be tracing as a nod to the replication and reproduction that characterises contemporary popular culture. Think about how your petals could form a pattern of colours. Once you’ve done, perhaps make flower with different expressions!

You will need:

  • A pencil
  • Two pieces of paper
  • A black pen
  • Watercolour paints, water pot and paintbrush (but you can use anything to add colour)
