Takashi Murakami at Brooklyn Museum
Murakami is at the Brooklyn museum until July 13, 2008 and if you haven't checked it out yet I suggest you grab a buddy and a camera and head on over there immediately!! This is the most amazing art I have ever seen in my life, everything from the gigantic statue sitting in the entrance, to the mecha-anime girl inside, its mind-blowing...I just wish I had taken some LSD so I can go apeshit haha! From floor to ceiling its mesmerizing, vibrant colors, incredible detail, I wish I could have snapped some photos inside but those stingy bastards wouldn't let me. : ( so I took picks outside.
The center piece of the exhibit has to be the mecha-anime girl, 3 life size figures, one a regular girl, the next she's transforming into something, and the last she is now a jet fighter. I was blown away, with details down to the very tip of her fingers. It reminded me of an Evangelion Pilot in their plug suits.
Murakami is the man...I have to get my hands on some merchandise now! Check out the exhibit!
