TAKASHI MURAKAMI - Gagosian London

Takashi Murakami's show of new work at The Gagosian Gallery, is a must see. This small show consists of 3 paintings and a video work. The centerpiece of Murakami's compact exhibition is a vast and intricate five-panel painting, 'Lots, Lots of Kaikai and Kiki, 2009'. This piece is breathaking in its size and itracacy. This ambitious piece shows the buoyant toon characters which have come to be seen as a reflection of Murakami's own charachter. This visually stunning is full of humor, like many of Takachi's work. This piece is the ultimate self portrait.
This painting is flanked by too massive paintings from the Time Bokan series, begun in 1993, which are also visually amazing.
This show is a definate must see not just for followers of contemporary japanise art but for anyone, an amazing exhibition.
