Contemporary Tokyo-born artist, Takashi Murakami unveiled a new exhibition, “Learning the Magic of Painting” this week in Paris.
The mixed media works feature pop art blended with Japanese culture from A to Z: anime, Buddha, cartoon characters and dragons to traditional Zen. The bright and cute items span three spaces with colourful psychedelic themes.
The first floor pays homage to the British painter, Francis Bacon with a series of sensational sculptures. Then there’s a room filled with textured tiles of the artist’s signature skulls. The other space shows over 15 painted handbags accompanied by paintings. For viewers, this will be art on a different level.
Explore the exhibition at the Galerie Perrotin which is on display until 23 December.
