> DESCRIPTION

Jellyfish Eyes is a wallpaper installation that covers an entire wall in Puck's cafe and was recently acquired for the MCA Collection. Combining the vivid colors of Japanese animation with the flatness typically found in Japanese art, this wallpaper series breaks down the distinction between painting and decoration, reflecting the impact of works by Andy Warhol.

Influenced by popular culture and traditional Japanese art forms, Murakami is one of the most significant artists of his generation to emerge from Japan. He is internationally recognized for his various curatorial projects, artworks, and mass-produced items, particularly those created with his studio and artists' collective Kaikai Kiki. Murakami's work blends east and west as well as fine art and design.
