Takashi Murakami’s Erotic Show at Gagosian London

We previously mentioned the latest show from Takashi Murakami at London’s Gagosian Gallery and now we are can give a closer look at the erotic portion of the exhibit. Murakami explores and questions the validity the traditional nude figure drawings have in art by recasting and rendering figures in manga style to exaggerated portions. Nurse Ko2 and 3-Meter Girl are the focal points of the exhibit as the life-sized yet absurdly proportioned figures provide an gateway into the conversations Murakami provoked with each composition.
