Looking at all kinds of art in general, contemporary art would be the most distinctive one. It is completely opposite to classical art as an immature system, with a number of possibilities on the use of media and emotions expressed by the art. In this paper, I am trying to figure out what is associated with Takashi Murakami’s work. Among all the papers studying Murakami’s art, they had concluded his work is exactly related to consumerism. Nevertheless, it is clear that the relationship with symbolism is an important aspect for exploring his art, which hasn’t been discovering yet. In this way, I did some research and gathered secondary sources from online databases and websites. Takashi Murakami, has always been considering a contemporary artist who blur the line between high and low art, but also well known as a “businessman”. This is why I am interested in finding out another aspect that is associate with Murakami. After the precise analysis of information I have found, my hypothesis on symbolism was correct, his works are more than just waiting for a sale, but having bigger value on the message he wants to convey. Overall, this paper is not only discovered Takashi Murakami, I choose this artist to find the rebellious in modern artworks and classic artworks.
