Takashi Murakami's collaborations span projects with Louis Vuitton, Supreme, Britney Spears, COMME des GARÇONS, and a T-shirt to help save the bees. More recently, the Japanese artist dropped a new merch capsule for Billie Eilish with Uniqlo UT and teased a new project with Hello Kitty.

Murakami's prolific career began in 1989 where his early oeuvre satirized an over-reliance on Western influences in contemporary Japanese art.

In 1998, he unveiled one of his most famous – and polarizing – pieces "My Lonesome Cowboy" an 8-foot manga figure entrapped in a whirlwind of his own semen, which sold at Christie's for 15.2 million – his most highly-valued work to date.

Murakami has since coined the term "superflat" to describe his pantheon of characters, his predilection for conflating high and low aesthetics, as well as the wider postmodern art movement in Japan as a whole.

We've scoured trusted resale sites to help you track down the Murakami grail you had in mind.
