Best things to do in Hong Kong in June
Charming both fine art and mainstream audiences worldwide with his cute and psychedelic works, which often feature colourful flowers with smiley faces and original characters like Kaikai and Kiki, eccentric Japanese artist Takashi Murakami returns to Hong Kong for a major survey exhibition. The exhibition will be taking over all the art galleries at Tai Kwun, showcasing more than 60 paintings and sculptures in an immersive setting that explores the multi-faceted work and life of Murakami. Those range from large-scale post-apocalyptic works to interpretations on classical Japanese paintings and Buddhism to his creative collaborations, including the character Doraemon. Also at the exhibition are some of the artist’s iconic and outlandish costume designs, video works, samples of his private art collection and the artist’s spectacular wall and floor art.
