Over the weekend, Chris and I went to the Takashi Murakami show at the Brooklyn Museum:

Murakami has been called Japan’s Andy Warhol, has worked with Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, and his team illustrated Kanye West’s music video, “Good Morning.” He also owns a company called Kaikai Kiki, which is a collaboration of young artists that do similar work (Kaikai and Kiki are the names of two of his cartoon characters). We went to Murakami’s show at the Gagosian last year, but the Brooklyn Museum’s is much more comprehensive:

There’s a video of Kaikai and Kiki that was so cute (it’s about watermelon seeds, poop, and spaceships). Here’s a youtube video of Kaikai and Kiki (although it’s not the Watermelon video).

There’s also a funny video about a kid robot named Inochi (the 57 second video sums up adolescence for boys.)

The exhibit runs through July and is definitely worth checking out!
