Visited the Murakami-Ego in March 2012, which is an exhibition by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami.
It was the first solo exhibition for the artist in the Middle East, showcasing over 60 works created since 1997, alongside new ones designed especially for the exhibition.
The 6-metre high self-portrait shows the artist as a giant meditating Buddha greeting his visitors at the entrance of the exhibition space.
With a PhD degree in Nihonga painting from the Tokyo University of the Arts, Takashi Murakami has developed a signature style where the most modern techniques combine with the skill and precision of traditional Japanese art.
Wow! thts nice..and by the way where was it/? and hw come u were there? just curious as Iam in UAE
this was in Qatar.
I was lucky enough to be able to attend it, cuz it lasted for a few days only!
and I heard UAE is having its own Taj Mahal now 😉
hope we can visit that sometime in the next decade!
yeah! its being build on a huge expanse of land! and tht willbe wonderful but perhaps the original will always have its charm..
Well, lets see how it turns out, although I am sure it will grab a lot of attention!
