Takashi Murakami recently launched a monumental new exhibition at New York City’s Galerie Perrotin entitled, “HEADS⟷HEADS.” The extensive presentation is filled with never-before-seen paintings inspired by the work of late iconic artist, Francis Bacon. One of the notable pieces is a sprawling 33-foot-long painting to commemorate one of the most influential Japanese painters of the Edo period, Soga Shohaku. Accompanying the paintings is a space dedicated to showcasing Murakami’s creative process spanning concept drawings, illustrations, and blueprints.
