Coinciding with London Fashion Week 2018, Superflat master Japanese artist Takashi Murakami continued his collaboration (covered) with American creative designer Virgil Abloh and presented a series of joint works entitled Future History at the Gagosian Gallery in London. The exhibition runs until April 7th and features large-scale paintings, sculptures and an installation drawing references to Abloh’s signature Off-White motifs alongside Murakami’s iconic cast of anime characters, reflecting incisively on the signs of the current times.

Amongst the works, visitors can enjoy the sculpture Life Itself, a kind of architectural structure designed by Abloh to house one of Murakami’s flower sculptures; a pair of paintings embellished with yellow Off-White™ branding and a spray-painted “O” as well as “HOLLOW” lettering on each one; black Flowers sculptures, and a glass house installation completely covered with black spray-paint and “LIFE ITSELF” on one side panel in white.
