With his recent entry into the Instagram world (@takashipom), Takashi Murakami has offered a rare look into his life for fans of his work. Of particular interest for us has been a glimpse into his huge studio space and his artistic process where the Japanese artist has been hard at work on a series of new paintings. For what show it’s hard to tell, but perhaps some will be headed to Galerie Perrotin for his solo opening in May, timed slightly after the release of his first feature film.
