Takashi Murakami at Gagosian Gallery in RomeJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 02 Nov 2010
Making a note of the most famous contemporary artists working today, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami is on that short list. Murakami will be taking his international recognition to one of the world's premier private gallery properties, Gagosian Gallery in Rome on November 13, 2010.
It almost seems like the world is still buzzing about the now famed Murakami show at MOCA in Los Angeles in early 2008, but Murakami's notoriety has only gained momentum. The exhibition at Gagosian in Rome, Italy features "two epic new paintings - Dragon in Clouds – Red Mutation and Dragon in Clouds – Indigo Blue – each comprise nine panels and measure eighteen meters long."
In the words of Murakami himself, "The combination of red and blue with a creature that has long been thought as a symbol of one’s destiny is my attempt to reaffirm my devotion to art - the creative process for the paintings resembled a prayer offering."
We will have full details of images coming soon.
NOVEMBER 13, 2010 - JANUARY 15, 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 13th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm
Gagosian Gallery, Rome
