The new NFT pixel art project by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami is the best we've seen all year, and it's not even finished yet. Murakami is following up his NFT collaboration with RTFKT (pronounced 'artefact,' as you'd expect), the Nike-owned digital collectibles studio, with his own NFT art project. 

Inspired by Nintendo's 1980s game console the NES, Godzilla, manga and more, the Murakami.Flowers project is our new favourite thing. It's colourful, vibrant, clever, and ties into the broader themes of the famous artist's work.
