DOB in Pure White Robe (Navy & Vermillion)
Offset lithograph, Signed and numbered in bottom right corner
Limited edition of 300
50 x 50cm
Mr. DOB, a hybrid cartoon figure, is based on a stylized portrait of the artist himself. A reflection of the artist’s critical attitude towards the emptiness of consumer culture, this work echoes contemporary media imagery and computer graphics while recalling the two-dimensionality of traditional Japanese painting. By drawing together Western styles, contemporary media, and the subculture of otaku (itself derived from the introduction of American comics), Murakami is able to reflect on a variety of issues, such as the impact of technology and globalization, and their effect on national and individual identity.
