Takashi Murakami's Next Blockbuster Showing Opens Tomorrow In Qatar

Takashi Murakami's Next Blockbuster Showing Opens Tomorrow In Qatar

Takashi Murakami is one of the richest artists. Qatar, rich with oil, is no stranger to splashing out on art. Thus Murakami: Ego, a new exhibition/extravaganza at Doha's Museum of Islamic Art is a match made in heaven. Murakami will be unveiling a number of new works, as well as sharing the sort of big hits you'd expect. He's even painted the exterior of the museum's Al Riwaq Exhibition Hall. Plus, there is a 6 meter tall inflatable portrait sculpture watching over the artist's massive super flat paintings. Awesome.

The exhbition opens tomorrow and runs through June 24, 2012. [Creative Review]
