Meaning & Analysis

The Mr. DOB collection features a variety of lithograph prints, all produced in edition sizes of 300, which were made throughout Takashi Murakami’s impressive artistic career. The renowned Japanese artist is famous for his distinct artistic style, characterised by an emphasis on bold and bright colours, the incorporation of cartoon characters and repeated graphic motifs, as well as privileging flat and glossy surfaces over depth and texture.

All the prints in this collection depict one of Murakami’s most well-known cartoon characters, Mr. DOB. The character was created by Murakami in 1993 and continues to appear in his artworks today. Despite appearing in different iterations, Mr. DOB’s appearance always resembles that of Mickey Mouse and the character can be identified by his large round ears, wide eyes, fluttering eyelashes and pronounced teeth. The character’s appearance encapsulates the ‘kawaii’ aesthetic, which refers to the Japanese culture of cuteness.
