In 1993, Japanese bluechip Takashi Murakami created Mr. DOB as an alter ego, a sort of self-portrait. With Mr. DOB, Murakami sought to create an icon, which, while authentically Japanese, would have universal appeal. Mr. DOB has a circular head with two ears; the letter D is inscribed on his left ear and the letter B on the right ear (The face is O-shaped, thus making his name legible). Mr. DOB's name is an abbreviation of the word "why", and it is meant to reflect Takashi Murakami's critical attitude towards the emptiness of consumer society.

In 2016, Takashi Murakami, with Complexicon and Bait, released two low edition vinyl figures (Murakami x Complexicon Mr DOB figures, produced by Bait and Switch collectibles). They were sold exclusively at Complexicon and The original is from an edition of 750, and the gold was released in an edition of just 250.

High res images are available on request, please contact the gallery with any questions.
