#GagosianViewingRoom: Takashi Murakami’s “The Golden Age: Kōrin—Kansei” features in our Art Basel 2018 Online Viewing Room.
Murakami moves freely within an ever-expanding field of aesthetic concerns and cultural inspirations, combining classical painting techniques with a mix of Pop, anime, and otaku imagery in his distinctive “Superflat” style. This painting is emblematic of his practice: bursting with dazzling pattern and color, the sharply defined organic shapes of the foreground are contrasted with the shimmering gold leaf and liquid swirls of black.
