A Shadow of Warhol
Takashi Murakami might be most popularly known for teaming up with Louis Vuitton in 2003. He collaborated with the company and created the LV brightly colored monograms that adorned their purses and generated millions by becoming the "must have" accessory. He now has an exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery in NYC through June 9th. Referred to as the Warhol of Japan, he merges fine art with Japanese animated cartoons and film.
