KaiKai Kiki is a company that represents various artists, their exhibits and events. The latest KaiKai Kiki gallery open to the public is at the VOLTA7 Art Fair in Basel, Switzerland. This collection of work, headed by KaiKai Kiki leader Takashi Murakami, draws inspiration from traditional Japanese art and vibrant contemporary aesthetics.

The gallery features a variety of paintings, structures and installations. The collection of the group's art combines stunning colors ranging from pretty pastels to electrifying neon hues. The paintings vary in size and depict a wide range of scenes, drawing inspiration from animals, nature and eccentric-looking people. My favorite piece from the collection is a structure of a bright pink elephant with a neon yellow-and-black zebra pattern and multicolored painted nails.
