Takashi Murakami "Arhat Cycle" @ Palazzo Reale Recap

Takashi Murakami recently took to Milan’s Palazzo Reale to present his solo show “Arhat Cycle.”

Takashi Murakami recently took to Milan’s Palazzo Reale to present his solo show “Arhat Cycle.” Organized by Blum & Poe and Murakami’s production company Kaikai Kiki Co., the exhibition showcased new pieces that continue the famed Japanese artist’s alluring style. Mystical creatures and aged caricatures from Murakami’s Arhat series take on three large canvases, while an Oval Budha Silver sculpture is positioned firmly in the middle of the exhibition. The flamboyant paintings represent Murakami’s wild imagination while also serving as commentary and reflection on the aftermath of 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Coinciding with the show, Palazzo Reale will also be hosting the European premiere to Murakami’s film Jellyfish Eyes. Enjoy the recap here and be sure to check out the exhibition if you’re in Milan.
