Product details

In ths exhibition, Takashi Murakami’s first in Hong Kong, explores one of the central dichotomies of his art – between joy and terror, his optimistic magnanimity as an artist and his pessimistic perspective on post-war Japan. Here, this dichotomy is symbolized by the stark contrast of bright smiling flowers and disturbing, menacing representations of skulls. Whether depicted as single iconic “portraits” or in complex clusters of virtuoso composition and paintwork that combine painstaking traditional artisanal techniques with the pop and fizz of manga, the flower and the skull stand as eternal motifs in the history of art and popular culture.
