Takashi Murakami, The Octopus Eats Its Own Legs Multicolor


The first major U.S. monograph in ten years on Murakami is the definitive hardcover survey of the paintings of one of today’s most influential artists. The Octopus Eats Its Own Legs explores the artist’s relationship to the tradition of Japanese painting and his facility in straddling high and low, ancient and modern, Eastern and Western, commercial and high art. New texts address Murakami’s output in the context of postwar Japan, situating the artist in relation to folklore, traditional Japanese painting, the Tokyo art scene in the 1980s and 1990s, and the threat of nuclear annihilation.
