Takashi Murikami provided us with a multitude of learning opportunities!
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.
