Famed Japanese artist Takashi Murakami unveils new works at his first Hong Kong solo exhibition in six years

While most audiences would often relate Takashi Murakami to imagery and motifs featuring clusters of cartoon sunflowers with smiley faces on it, his repertoire expands far beyond it. Continually evolving while blending everything from traditional Japanese painting to otaku subculture to Western art theory to hip-hop. Presenting new paintings seen by the public for the first time, the solo exhibition features variations of Murakami’s own larger-than-life characters and a mural-sized painting that perfectly encapsulates his flirtation with high art and popular culture.
