sadly murakami leaves us...

Last night project:gallery was fortunate enough to team up with our friends at GenArt to sponsor the closing exhibition of Murakami at MOCA. This has honestly been one of my favorite exhibits, and I am actually very sad to see it go - if you missed it you really missed out.

Well at least we were able to get the team together and put a few drinks down in order to toast one of the most interesting artists working today. Plus it was a great opportunity to see the show in a private setting - ie. no kids and soccer moms.










Tan Tan Bo Puke - is one of my favorite works in the show. A massive piece, pictures in the catalog just don't do it justice. I felt compelled to sneak a shot of it with people so you can really get a sense of the scale and chaos of this work. This image only captures about two-thirds of it...below are Yoskay Yamamoto and Chris Devera discussing their love/hate relationship with Murakami - as in love the work, hate the feeling they will never get to work on this scale.










All in all it was a great night and a nice chance to say goodbye...
