Ensō is a collection of prints produced by the inspiring Japanese artist, Takashi Murakami. Many of the works in this collection were exhibited in 2015 at a Pop-Up exhibition of the same name at the Kaikai Kiki Gallery in Tokyo. All the prints in this collection feature the Ensō, a circle that is hand-drawn freely in one uninhibited brushstroke. The symbol is used in Zen, a school of Mahayana Buddhism to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. The Ensō is also used to symbolise enlightenment, strength, elegance and the universe.

The collection features a range of variations of the Ensō. The Ensō is conventionally characterised by the minimalism of traditional Japanese aesthetics. Interestingly, in this collection, Murakami fuses a traditional painting style with more contemporary influences such as spray painting.
