Murakami Flowers NFTs

Murakami Flowers NFT Overview

Project Information

Murakami.Flowers is an 11,664 NFT collection in which artist Takashi Murakami’s representative artwork, flowers, are expressed as dot art evocative of Japanese TV games created in the 1970s. The work is being developed with the number 108 as the keyword; a combination of 108 backgrounds and flower colors make up a field, and there are 108 fields. Each field has 108 flower images, resulting in 11,664 flower images in total. The number 108 is a reference to bonnō or earthly temptations.

Murakami.Flowers is being activated upon the system of Superflat, a theory that artist Takashi Murakami put forth in 2000. Superflat refers to the cultural concept generated in Japan in the 77 years since its overwhelming defeat in the Pacific War.

Like Azuki, Murakami.Flowers has a "MIND MAP" that has 6 sections of focus for the project; Vision and Values, Community, Metaverse, A Bridge Between, Ecosystem, and Physical World. In December 2022, Murakami is planning to release a portable game with an LCD monitor. In addition, he plans to start developing and producing online and digital games.
