A champion of bridging high and low, Murakami has gained worldwide renown for his vivid designs that incorporate elements of anime and manga. Outside the contemporary art world, his collaborations with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Louis Vuitton have made Murakami a household name.

Set in the Japanese countryside, “Jellyfish Eyes” combines live-action adventure with computer-generated animation. Watch the preview below.
