A Takashi Murakami Moment

Finding Yourself

In Real Time

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston hosted Takashi Murakami: Lineage of Eccentrics, a collaboration with Nobuo Tsuji. The first time I saw a Murakami exhibit, I was a young teen and he immediately became my favorite artist. Over a decade later and it’s like picking up where I left off with an old friend. Traditionalism and Modernity are molded by our perspectives through history. Part of the exhilaration and familiarity in walking through this exhibit is observing how we consume his imagery as a reflection of ourselves.
