Nothing gives me more pleasure than watching her appreciate art. Her eyes swell, her finger darts back and forth pointing to share the magnitude of what she's experiencing with me. Her tiny mind exploding, processing all of the shapes and colors. It's sensory overload in the best possible way. Of all the art exhibits I've taken her to, @takashipom has by far been her favorite. We actually did three rounds of the show and she wasn't finished at that. Usually she's all "time to go" but not this time. I highly recommend taking your kids to @vanartgallery to check out this show.

Takashi Murakami's The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg is a must see!

Pt1. Some of my favourite micro detail at the #takashimurakami exhibit. There was so much to take in, kinda like my work space.

Happy Lunar New Year! Celebrate the #YearoftheDog with a visit to the Gallery to discover the depth and complexity of @takashipom’s work. Can you spot these playful dogs in one of his monumental paintings?

In the late 1990s, #TakashiMurakami developed a new theory of art that he coined ‘Superflat.’ The concept describes a world that blurs distinctions between high art and low culture, a world post-World War II that is metaphorically flattened by the advent of the atomic bomb. Murakami was inspired by the scrolls of #EdoPeriod artist, Jakūchu Itō. As Murakami explains, Itō painted animals in “a completely flat composition. A lot of chickens. A lot of dogs. The painter is organizing [the composition] for the eyeball moving.”

There are so many details to keep the eye moving across the picture plane in Takashi Murakami’s works. Come take a closer look! #VAGxMURAKAMI
