Now at MOCA: MURAKAMI + Black Panther: The Revolutionary Art of Emory Douglas

Dubbed the Warhol of Asia and one of the most exciting and innovatiive artist of this century, Murakami style navigates between fine arts, popular culture and his use of "cartoon-like" flat style images to create a blend that has won his following since the early 1990s. The exhibition combines multi-media, painting, installation as well as scultpure and the results are absolutely breath-taking. Check out the links below to hear the artist discuss his inspirations as well as the exhibit and other tidbits. The exhibits runs through February 11, 2008.

His works make me swoon. They are so cleverly disguised as cartoons even when they are horrific and violent. The colors and the energy...MY GOD!!
