Complex is happy to announce that Takashi Murakami is back on board as a host committee member and curator of the 2017 Art Zone, presented by 1800 Tequila. As Marc Eckō, founder and chief brand and creative officer of Complex Networks, explained in a recent press release: “Takashi Murakami is the father of the ‘Superflat’ art movement… it defies limiting definitions and emboldens collaboration amongst disparate people. This is the essence of ComplexCon. We are delighted that he will again bring his distinctive artistic ingénue to this year’s event.”
Get the full scoop on what Murakami is up to at this year's ComplexCon Art Zone—exclusive goods from fellow artists like JR, KAWS, and Snarkitecture will likely be involved—along with info on official sponsor 1800 Tequila's special lounge designed by talented artist Madsteez are all detailed in the video above. And for those in the Long Beach, California, area, you can catch Complex’s annual internet IRL event Nov. 4 through 5.
