Known for his collaborations with pop icon Kanye West and fashion house Louis Vuitton, and for vibrant anime-inspired characters, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami blurs the boundaries between high and low culture, ancient and modern, East and West.

Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, this major retrospective of his paintings features 50 works that span three decades of the artist's career, from his earliest mature works to his recent, monumentally scaled paintings.

The exhibition shows how Murakami's art is rooted in traditions of Japanese painting and folklore, and highlights the artist's careful attention to craft and materials.

It also showcases his astute eye for the contemporary influences of globalization, media culture, and the continued threats of nuclear power.
