Takashi Murakami @ Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong

June 21, 2013

When everything is said and done, Takashi Murakami will undoubtedly go down as one of the most influential artists of our time. After receiving a Master’s in Nihonga painting from Tokyo University of the Arts, Murakami went on to develop a unique style influenced by the canon of Japanese art. Over the course of a generation, we’ve witnessed the results: psychedelic, animated illustrations that defy realism and test the limits of artistic imagination. To commemorate a 20-year relationship with the artist, Galerie Perrotin held a solo exhibition in Hong Kong – Murakami’s ninth in the perpetually growing metropolis. Enjoy photos of the exhibit below, which features new work by Mr. DOB, Murakami’s famed alter ego. The solo exhibition runs through July 6.
