Titled ‘Takahashi Murakami Paints Self Portraits’ the new solo show by Murakami will be opening in a couple of weeks at the amazing Emmanuel Perrotin Gallery in Paris. There is expected to be around seventeen paintings, five sculpture and two films on show which will open on the 15th September. ‘Murakami has been known to paint “self-portraits” in the past including his alter egos like Mr. DOB, Inochi, Mr. Pointy, Tan Tan Bo and Oval, but this time expect to see a set of self-portraits featuring the artist accompanied by his favorite characters.’ A show I suspect will be extremely busy, so if you are in Europe, this show will be well worth the trip.
