STPI brings Takashi Murakami's colourful world to the STPI gallery with Takashi Murakami: From Superflat to Bubblewrap. The exhibition explores the dynamic practice of Murakami, one of the most notable artists emerging from post-war Japan and a force to be reckoned with in the world of contemporary art today.
From printmaking traditions, textures of graffiti and neon signages to hypnotically seamless wallpapers and digital moving images, explore Takashi Murakami's dynamic artistic expression at this milestone solo exhibition. Focusing on the link between the 'Superflat' theory and iconography which launched his global career to a recent examination of the recessive realism of Japan's economic bubble crisis, coined 'Bubblewrap', be one of the first to marvel at his range of exciting and never-before-seen works.
The annual special exhibition at STPI will be supported by a diverse array of public programmes: including an artist talk, panel discussions, film screenings, printmaking workshops, and guided tours of both the exhibition and STPI's Creative Workshop in multiple languages.
