Takashi Murakami Helps Google Celebrate the Summer Solstice

Google doodle by Takashi Murakami to celebrate the Summer Solstice

If you log onto Google today you may be surprised what you find. Google tapped the talent of Art world mega-star Takashi Murakami to create his own interpretation of the Google logo to celebrate the Summer Solstice. Takashi Murakami’s trademark psychedelic flower faces, narcotized eyes, and menacing mouths have been seen in a lot of places from the Brooklyn Museum to the Louvre, and from the sides of Louis Vuitton handbags and the covers of a Kanye West’s album. However, this is the first time the artist designed a Google doodle, which is what it’s called each time the logo is remixed to celebrate holidays, famous birthdays, and notable discoveries and inventions. There have been over 300 Google doodles since 1998. You can find them all catalogued at www.google.com/logos/.
