Takashi Murakami Discusses ‘Jellyfish Eyes’ Monster Film
Having already conquered an art world that has seen his anime-inspired characters embraced by the masses and his blissed-out flowers sprouted from the walls of the biggest collectors in the world, Takashi Murakami is now setting his sights on the the silver screen. With aspirations to bring his work to life using CGI for a monster movie like Godzilla, which was born out of fear of nuclear terror, his latest vision draws inspiration from the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Titled Jellyfish Eyes, the movie follows a young boy who after an earthquake has to move with his family to an “experimental city” where each child is paired with a small monster. Murakami hopes to release his film later this year.
