The exhibition in Hong Kong (21 May - 6 July 2013), is the 9th solo show by
Takashi Murakami organized by Galerie Perrotin in 20 years of collaboration,
that will display in particular a set of new paintings featuring his famous alterego
Mr. Dob, and self-portraits of the artist surrounded by his emblematic
characters including Kaikai and Kiki with epure backgrounds of skulls pattern.
After earning his Doctorate in Nihonga painting from Tokyo University of the
Arts, Takashi Murakami developed a unique protean style which associated
the most modern of techniques with the precision and virtuosity of traditional
Japanese art and that of Ukiyo-e engraving in particular. Inspired by Manga and
Kawaii culture, his irresistible world is peopled by monstrous and charming
characters, facetious descendants of past myths. His theory of the Superflat
aesthetic, which he introduced in 2000, attempts to blur the frontiers between
popular art and grand art. The absence of perspective, the two-dimensionality
of ancient Japanese art, filters in to every medium – paintings, sculptures,
prints/silk-screens, wallpaper, animated films and accessories.
Since his first monographic exhibition outside Japan in 1995 at Galerie Perrotin,
Murakami has become recognized as one of the most prominent contemporary
artists of his time, and his work has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions
at museums and art institutions throughout the world. In 2010, France’s
renowned Château de Versailles organized an important solo exhibition of his
works on the palace grounds. In 2012, a retrospective entitled “Murakami-Ego”
was organized by QMA at Al Riwaq Exhibition Hall, Doha, Qatar and included
the 100m masterpiece painting “The 500 Arhats”. From 4 July to 8 December
2013, PLATEAU, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul will organize an important
solo show of his works, “Takashi in Superflat Wonderland”.
