Martin Lawrence Galleries presents artist shows: exclusive selections by Takashi Murakami
Jan 7, 2021 - February 7, 2021
Japanese artist Takashi Murakami is one of the biggest names in the contemporary art world. Murakami’s style blurs the lines between “high” art – works typically seen in galleries or museums – with “low” art, such as cartoons or advertisements. Throughout the development of his career, he has come to coin his own stylistic term for his work dubbed as “Superflat”.
He has collaborated with fashion powerhouse Louis Vuitton, pop culture magazine Complex, and American artist Kanye West. Murakami is frequently exhibited in galleries and museums across the globe including the Palace of Versailles, Museum of Modern Art, Tate Liverpool, and more.
