Murakami Show @ The Brooklyn Museum

This past weekend, I saw the Takeshi Murakami exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. So inspiring! I'm a big anime and manga fan so the show was double the fun. I couldn't take pictures of the exhibit, but this piece was out in the lobby.
Check it out if you are in the area, but a warning to parents though: there are a few pieces that are definitely NOT for kids. But personally, I love art that is both cute and sinister at the same time.

Very cool stuff!
If you are up for it, I would like to pass along the ArteyPico Award. :) Check out my blog if you like. :) Chickens are among my favorite things to draw! :)

Wow, that is some cool stuff! Wish I could see it up close. Wonder if it will be coming to L.A. at any point.

Thanks for the pics!

Yes, definitely not for kids. I felt uncomfortable looking at some of the pieces with little kiddies walking around.
