Takashi Murakami Exhibition at The FABRICK Gallery

Reaching the ranks of the world’s most well-known and identifiable artists, Takashi Murakami is the subject of FABRIK Gallery’s latest exhibit titled Takashi Murakami +. The Japanese pop-artist has earned critical acclaim from around the world for his remarkable ability to combine both high and low aspects of art with strong pop-culture influences. The show itself includes not only the works of Murakami himself, but also drawing two artists from the talented Kaikai Kiki (a company created for artist development) roster of artists, Mr. and Chiho Aoshima. The exhibition includes works from 2001 to 2008 including some memorable DOB pieces. DOB is a mouse-like character developed by Murakami which was based on the Japanese slang term “dobojite”, meaning “why?”. Through the actions of DOB, Murakami was able to assume an alter-ego for commenting on Japanese society. The show takes place from now until September 30th.
