UNO is partnering with Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami for the fifth deck in the brand’s UNO Artiste series. 

Inspired by Murakami’s signature bright and bold colors, along with his smiling flower characters, the UNO Artiste Series: Murakami brings his “Superflat” aesthetic to life in a premium UNO deck. The deck incorporates Murakami’s artwork and marks the first Murakami collaboration piece to include one of his abstract paintings. 

The UNO Artiste series launched in 2019 with Jean-Michel Basquiat artwork and expanded in 2020 with decks featuring the art of Keith Haring and Nina Chanel Abney. In 2021, UNO featured the work of artist and illustrator Shepard Fairey.
