Takashi Murakami’s “Homage to Yves Klein” at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris was wildly successful, as we were on the scene to capture the reception. You’ll notice that Murakami has carefully color-coordinated a series of monochromatic works – including his notable skull and flower motifs while introducing studies of rich textures – with plenty of the requisite blue. The culmination is absolutely something that you have to see in person. “Homage to Yves Klein” runs from October 20 to January 7, 2012 at Galerie Perrotin.
