Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg

TAKASHI MURAKAMI: THE OCTOPUS EATS ITS OWN LEG is the catalogue to the recent blockbuster exhibition of paintings, sculptures and installations at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Show and catalogue originated with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; both survey the career of Japan’s most famous and influential contemporary artist. Renowned for his genre-busting idea of “Superflat”, Murakami draws influences from popular culture, commercial illustration, traditional screen painting and Buddhist folk art. Includes essays by the artist, curator Michael Darling, and four other contributors.
