LA///TAKASHI MURAKAMI TASTES DAVY JONES’ TEAR…
Japan's most omnipresent Pop Artist/star TAKASHI MURAKAMI brought his latest series of work to Los Angeles last week when his new curiously titled show "Davy Jones' Tear" opened at BLUM & POE GALLERY. Featuring eight large new paintings representing three distinctly different modes of artistic thought, Murakami's new work pushes further away from his more representational, manga/anime-influenced style and in large part embraces a more abstract, decorative mode. Represented again are more images from Murakami's Daruma series featuring portraits of the 6th century father of Zen Buddhism alongside new psychedelic abstract works that reflect a distinct graffiti influence, and two paintings that pay homage to the 18th century Rimpa school of Japanese decorative art. It's a must-see show for sure and even haters will find something of interest in the deceptively compelling new panels. HAVE A LOOK:Opening photos by Supertouch's ERIC NAKAMURA.
