Takashi Murakami Google Icon
Japan’s most celebrated contemporary artist, Takashi Murakami, has been commissioned by Google to decorate it’s iconic logo. The same prestige has been thrust upon the likes of Jackson Pollock and Norman Rockwell, and as you know the logo is frequently changed to celebrate special events, or days around the world. Murakami’s work was commissioned in order to celebrate summer solstice, June 21st. Entitled The First Day of Summer, the superflat movement founder has decided to enlist the help of his Kaikai and Kiki characters as well as his multicolored flowers.
