" Le summum de l'art c'est de faire du fric!" Andy Wahrol

Takashi Murakami is often billed as the next Andy Warhol. Like the American pop art icon, he fuses high and low, pulling imagery from consumer culture to produce visually arresting, highly original work. He is vigorously, ingeniously self-promotional. In the past few years, Murakami has swept across the US and Europe, receiving fawning media attention and exhibiting at big-name museums. Just shy of 44, the charismatic artist even lives and works in what he calls a factory. How much more Warhol can you get?
