DOB in Wonderland

Takashi Murakami; Photo - Journal of Contemporary ArtJapanese pop artist Takashi Murakami is speaking tonight at the Public Art Fund. Best known for his subversions of Japanese anime images, and more recently embraced by fashionistas for his redesign of the Louis Vuitton bags (the colored LV logo), Gothamist loves his work and the fact that he splits his time between Tokyo and Brooklyn. He had a huge exhibit in Grand Central a few years ago, which had his sculptures hanging in Vanderbilt Hall. Check out more of his art here and here.

Look at his official website and his bio.

Beat Takeshi and Takashi Murakami? No way!
