Murakami

I saw a great exhibition this weekend at the Brooklyn Museum. It was a retrospective of the work of Takashi Murakami an influential and talented Japanese artist. His works are very imaginative and were largely influenced by Japanese anime and popular culture. (You weren't allowed to take photos in the exhibition unfortunately, but this one was in the entrance to the museum.) It was a lot of fun!

To me that looks like a chld admiring a giant sunfish.

je ne connaissais pas (hop une petite recherche sur Internet) en effet son œuvre fait beaucoup référence a l'univers Japonais et au dessin animé
