Dallas Fish Market presents Takashi Murakami Pop Art Dinner
Celebrating the acclaimed work of Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, the five-course dinner from Chef Richard Triptow features viewings of Murakami’s original artworks. Each course will also be paired with sake and Japanese beer.
Japanese Pop Artist Takashi Murakami is well-known worldwide with his paintings commanding six to eight figures at auction today, an incredible fact considering he is still a young contemporary artist with much promise still to come. Murakami’s art is rooted in traditions of Japanese painting and folklore and highlights the artist’s careful attention to craft and materials. It also showcases his astute eye for the contemporary influences of globalization, media culture, and the continued threats of nuclear power. He exploded into mainstream fame years ago collaborating with Louis Vuitton, Pharell Williams/Billionaire Boys club, Kanye West’s “Graduation” album cover and many other pop culture projects. Known for his vibrant anime-inspired characters, Mr. Murakami blurs the boundaries between high and low culture, ancient and modern, East and West.
During this event, guests will come face-to-face with original works by Takashi Murakami available for purchase, and many additional works can be viewed at Martin Lawrence in the Dallas Galleria.
