Another highlight from the Art Basel Hong Kong week was Takashi Murakami's new exhibition at Galerie Perrotin in central Hong Kong. In celebration of the gallery's 20-year relationship with Mr Murakami, this is the Japanese artist's 9th showing with Perrotin. This particular new body of work features Murakami's "famous alter-ego Mr. Dob and self-portraits of the artist surrounded by his emblematic characters including Kaikai and Kiki with epure backgrounds of skulls pattern."

Organized by artists, Yote and Jetsonorama, The Painted Desert Project invited several artists to visit the Navajo country region of Northern Nevada to meet local residents and create murals. Learning of local customs, history, and tradition, the work created here references much of the culture specific to this area. The most recent contribution to this project came from Ever, who painted a merchant stand with two different, highly colorful pieces.

This is certainly not like the majority of graffiti videos being made currently. Set to a thoughtfully chosen soundtrack, this should be motivation to go visit Rio or bet yet, South America as a whole.

This week in China kicked off the first edition of Art Basel Hong Kong, the world's most famed art fair that has already taken over Basel, Switzerland in June each year and Miami in December. This particular edition focuses primarily on Asia and Asia-Pacific galleries, given us at Juxtapoz a chance to see new talent and new artists that we have yet to see in person.
