Takashi Murakami – Jellyfish Eyes – Black 4

1,500.00 excl. VAT

Takashi Murakami is one of the leading contemporary Japanese artists and a favourite of international collectors. In his work he combines traditional Japanese imagery with (Japanese) pop culture. Murakami’s distinctive “Superflat” style challenges our ideas on secular and religious visual culture, while it is often both a commentary on, as well as a homage to the history of art.

Murakami’s “Jellyfish Eyes Black 4” references Japanese kaijū (monster) movies from the 1950s. It evokes the anxiety that pervades such films, echoing the fear once faced by Japan with respect to radiation, pollution, and isolation. Of these films Murakami has said, “When society is less anxious, few people are interested in monster movies. But when people are scared, monsters are back in business. […] Monsters don’t heal the viewer so much as give voice to their inner fears.
