IN THE LAND OF THE DEAD STEPPING ON THE TAIL OF A RAINBOW / EXHIBIT BY TAKASHI MURAKAMI
Posted: Jan 19 2015
As soon as we hopped off the plane we dropped off our bags and headed straight to the Gagosian Gallery to catch Takashi Murakami's last showing of "In the land of the dead stepping on the tail of the rainbow". A range of new paintings and sculptures was created as a result of Murakami’s exploration of Japanese art made following historic natural disasters. Combining classical techniques with the latest technologies, the artworks feature elements of religious symbols, self-portraits, science fiction and manga imagery.
