“I have said that a role of an artist is to discern the present and express it for the future audience,” said Takashi Murakami. “But if my art can effect any change here and now, I want to contribute it not only to give back but to give power to the Black community plagued by the racial injustice.”
The collection came together in response to the national uprising in honor of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man whose life was tragically taken by a Minneapolis police officer.
