Murikami Superflat Goes 3D for Kids

Takashi Murikami provided us with a multitude of learning opportunities!Takashi Murikami projectTakashi Murikami project 5

Takashi Murikami is from Japan.  He loves “Superflat,”  a word he made up!  It means colors and shapes look flat on a page, not round.  In this  piece of art, we made Superflat go 3D:  With a sphere… but the only way you can tell from the front is to notice the light casting shadows and shapes having perspective.


Students learned about working larger to smaller, a technique used in painting, as well as contrast, form, perspective, pattern and optical illusion.
