Takashi Murakami
One of the most acclaimed artists to emerge from post-war Asia, Takashi Murakami is known for his signature “Superflat” aesthetic: a colorful, two-dimensional style that straddles the division between fine art and pop culture as it unites elements of anime, Japanese nihonga, and ukiyo-e woodcuts. Common motifs across Murakami’s oeuvre—which spans paintings, sculptures, prints, and more—include smiling flowers, bears, and the Mickey Mouse–inspired character Mr. DOB. They also appear throughout Murakami’s thriving market for merchandise and collectibles. Murakami has presented at institutions including the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, MoMA PS1, Mori Art Museum, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum, Museum für Moderne Kunst, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, among others, and his work has sold for millions on the secondary market. Murakami also runs a large influential art production and artist management company, the Tokyo-based Kaikai Kiki Co.

Rufai Zakari
Rufai Zakari’s figurative works are made from discarded single-use plastics gathered from the streets of his home country of Ghana. Zakari graduated from Ghanatta College of Art and Design in Accra, the school where some of his esteemed Ghanaian peers, including Amoako Boafo, Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe, and Kwesi Botchway, also studied. He also apprenticed under the Accra-based street artist Mozzay. Zakari stitches together scraps of found refuse into striking portraits of Ghanaian women in both traditional and contemporary garb. His practice has garnered widespread acclaim, resulting in his work appearing at exhibitions in London, Accra, and Dubai, among other cities. His work has been acquired by the Arthur Lewis Collection, the Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection, and the Ditau Collection, among others. In crafting his loving portraits from trash, Zakari seeks to examine the roles that consumerism, pollution, labor, and industrialization play in Ghana today.

Plastic Jesus
The anonymous street artist known as Plastic Jesus embraces guerilla artmaking tactics: Throughout his career, he’s covertly placed “useless plastic boxes” on Best Buy shelves, mounted a “No Kardashian Parking Anytime” sign, and constructed a miniature wall around Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star in the lead-up to the 2016 election. Plastic Jesus’s provocative, irreverent practice spans painting, printmaking, sculpture, and installation. The U.K.-born, Los Angeles–based artist’s first career was as a photojournalist, but the narrowness of mainstream media coverage encouraged him to apply his visual storytelling skills to a more direct practice. He has exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, and Washington, D.C.
