The title of the exhibition Korean with the adjective "Supeflat" (High stability) refers to the theory developed by the artist during the nineties that will become the leitmotif of his entire production. The Superflat consists in using the typical Japanese visual tradition that is influenced by the occidental Pop Art and the Japanese otaku subculture, from which come the manga and anime.
