Takashi Murakami’s ‘Jellyfish Eyes’ Screens in Los Angeles and NYC
Takashi Murakami will present his debut feature-film “Jellyfish Eyes” at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles tonight before heading to the Film Society of Lincoln Center on June 1st. The New York screening will be followed by a free talk with the celebrated Japanese pop artist.
A champion of bridging high and low, Murakami has gained worldwide renown for his vivid designs that incorporate elements of anime and manga. Outside the contemporary art world, his collaborations with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, and Louis Vuitton have made Murakami a household name.
Set in the Japanese countryside, “Jellyfish Eyes” combines live-action adventure with computer-generated animation. Watch the preview below.
