Takashi Murakami

A few months ago, at the Portland Art Museum, I was fortunate enough to see two of Takashi Murakami’s paintings in the flesh.  They were wall sized, I would guess maybe 8′ x 20′ each, and full of vibrant colors similar to the paintings below.  His colors were not just bright, but some of them also had a shimmer effect, or looked as though glitter was blended into them.  Murakami was born in Tokyo in 1962, and now lives between Tokyo and New York.  If you get a chance to see any of his work, definitely check it out.
