Sakurai mass-produces screen printings on the topic of American and popular world culture. Specific subjects often include supermodels, cars, rock stars, song lyrics, and television personalities. Sakurai's work also often addressed commodification and consumerism. His design work is less text-based than his serigraphs and paintings and can be seen in many movies.[citation needed]
