Martin Lawrence Galleries presents Takashi Murakami opening reception
Takashi Murakami, known to many around the world as Japan’s Andy Warhol, ensures that each of his magnificent works of art reflects his craft and insightful engagement with popular culture, folklore and pop art style, all mixed with traditional Japanese culture. One of today's most imaginative artists, Murakami is universally recognized for both his fine art and commercial output - including collaborations with hip-hop stars Kanye West and Pharrell Williams, as well as designs for the fashion and beauty industry with Louis Vuitton, Issey Miyake, and Shu Uemura.
Murakami works have been exhibited in over 82 museums around the globe including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, Japan Society, New York, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, New York, Palace of Versailles, Versailles, France, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow. Most recently his first retrospective was installed at the Vancouver Art Gallery in Canada.
Takashi Murakami is one of the family of superb 20th and 21stcentury artists, such as Warhol, Haring, Chagall, Picasso and Miró that MLG proudly offers at their fine art galleries located in nine cities including New York, New Orleans, Maui, La Jolla, Costa Mesa, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, and Las Vegas.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through July 12.
