Takashi Murakami's New Work Shows his Dark Side

Takashi Murakami is typically known for his manga-esque, cutesy art pieces. At his new exhibition at the Gagosian gallery in New York titled, “Picture of Fate: I Am But A Fisherman Who Angles in the Darkness of his Mind,” Murakami’s work took on a more macabre twist.

His feature work in the exhibition is a large piece that combines several aspects of his superflat style called, “A Picture Of The Blessed Lion Who Stares At Death” which—though brightly colored—does contain an array of skulls. Though some of his work is a bit dark, this piece is certainly darker than his usual pieces.
