Aesthetics Wiki

Superflat pop is an aesthetic relevant from 2007 to early 2010's inspired by Murakami's established art movement and it's characterised by the use of vibrant color palletes, kawaii characters and funky clothing used in animation, video games, advertisment and fashion. It's similar to McBling but more focus on kawaii element.

Superflat was coined in 2001 by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami to describe his established art movement based on the flat aspect of traditional Japanese art with Anime and Manga craze of post war Japanese society. He helped other artists to put Japan on the art world map. It's the japanese answer to pop art. It helped bridge the gap between fine art and commercial aesthetics. (Under Construction),
