Harnessing the Power of Art

The Artist

Internationally-acclaimed artist, Takashi Murakami, is supporting 1 in 11. He has created this piece of art exclusively for an art auction that was held in London on 12th February 2015 to help raise funds for 1 in 11.

Takashi Murakami, has also designed and created our unique logo for the 1 in 11 campaign. The logo uses Murakami’s famous superflat style, which uses colour in the shapes of everyday objects to create high art. You may recognise the flower design - it’s based on some of Murakami’s most iconic pieces so we’re very excited to be able to use it!
