Openings: Takashi Murakami – “Homage to Yves Klein” @ Galerie Perrotin

Last night, Homage to Yves Klein opened at the Galerie Perrotin in Paris. As the title suggests, the newest solo from Takashi Murakami was a tribute to Klein, the late French artist who is considered a leading proponent of Nouveau réalisme and developer of the famous International Klein Blue (IKB). This deep blue color was used liberally by the Japanese in his flower and skull motifs for this show as well as one of the monochromatic works that was offered in this new body of […]

Previews: Takashi Murakami – “Homage to Yves Klein” @ Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin

On the heels of his print retrospective, A History of Editions, over the summer at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Takashi Murakami will be returning to the Paris gallery for an exhibition of new original works, potentially more akin to his expansive Self Portraits show there in 2009. In a distinct departure for the superflat pioneer, Homage to Yves Klein, a reference to the post-war European artist who was considered a leading proponent of Nouveau réalisme, will debut a series of abstract color profile works inspired by […]

Showing: Takashi Murakami – “A History of Editions” @ Emmanuel Perrotin (Paris)

Takashi Murakami fans are in for a real treat as Emmanuel Perrotin is currently holding a retrospective of the limited edition prints created by the founder of the Superflat movement. The space has on display 160 prints created between 2001 to 2011. We drooled over some of Murakami’s rarest prints to date including coveted gems such as 727’s, Tan Tan Bo, Homage to Francis Bacon, Golden DOB just to name a select few. His newer tondo flower and Davy Jones’ Tear abstracts were also on view. This show […]

Studio Visits: Martin Oppel

Back during Art Basel Miami, we had the pleasure of visiting the Miami studio of Argentinian-born, Miami/NY-based artist Martin Oppel. Oppel, who has shown with Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Miami and Paris amongst others, works in a wide range of mediums—including painting, sculpture and most recently photography—often focusing on the materials and the process of art, while also making work that is visually attractive and thought-provoking. Dominating his space were what appeared to be gravity-defying stacks of rock, marble and concrete, which were in fact […]

Openings: KAWS – “Pay the Debt to Nature” @ Emmanuel Perrotin (Paris)

Street artist turned pop icon KAWS unveiled a new body of work, entitled Pay the Debt to Nature (previewed), at the Paris branch of Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin last night. Highlighting his immediately identifiable style though a collection of new acrylic paintings, the most well-known cartoon character of the 21st century took center stage in signature KAWS fashion. With clean lines and bold colors, Spongebob was dissected into puzzle-like fragments and pieced back together into multi-panel assemblages, a unique technique first seen early this year during […]

Teaser: KAWS @ Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin (Paris)

After “Passing Through” Hong Kong in a giant way (covered), KAWS will be bringing his unique brand of pop art to Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin on November 6th. It was at Perrotin’s Miami location in 2008 where KAWS made some of his first major waves in the fine art world with the Pharrell “curated” exhibit, Saturated, showing the public for the first time some of his impressively rendered, large scale Smurfs and Spongebob themed works. Although he has shown work in a previous group exhibit at […]
