early winter, my ©murakami

I was not able to take a photo of the first leaves of fall, but I managed to capture the season’s first snowfall.

Outside our apartment, 8 am, 28 October 08.

After watching a feature on Japanese artist Takashi Murakami on Swedish TV SVT1 two weeks ago, I was urged to order this book published by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. It arrived today from Amazon UK. Containing essays that focus on early works, the development of his characters, and his engagement with global pop culture, ©Murakami is the first comprehensive art book on one of the most important artists and thinkers of our time. The book is also filled with photographs of Murakami’s larger-than-life creation/installations and art works. Murakami is also famously known for collaborating with Louis Vuitton and having created commercially successfully lines such as Monogram Multicolore, Monogram Cerises, Cherry Blossom, Eye Love and recently, the Monogramouflage.

I LVoe!

    Hopefully I am back home before Christmas at least. I miss winter and the snow.

    I heard about Murakami and he is one of the best modern artists around.

    Wow, that’s sooner than you think Charles! Good for you, and Odd of course. :) Yeah, now is Murakami’s time, following Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons.
