SUPERFLAT AND CONSUMERISM
Some argue that Superflat goes further than pop art in blurring the lines between high and low culture. Not only does the movement take low culture elements and make them high art, but Superflat turns these artworks into merchandise. As well as artists producing their work (many Superflat sculptures release their pieces as collectible miniature figurines, for example) and repackaging them into things like toys, T-shirts and keyrings that are more affordable, collaborations with other figures in popular culture are common. Today, the Superflat movement saturates many aspects of global pop culture as artists continue to push these boundaries.
