PAINTER PROFILE: TAKASHI MURAKAMI

by jiro

This Friday we spotlight an artist of varied media. Takashi Murakami‘s work ranges from paintings and sculptures to giant ballons and installments. Arguably Japan’s top contemporary artist, he’s crossed genre’s to create handbags for Marc Jacobs and has been featured in galleries across NYC.

“If my art looks positive and cheerful, I would doubt my art was accepted in the contemporary art scene. My art is not Pop art. It is a record of the struggle of the discriminated people.” – Takashi Murakami
