Brian Donnelly, aka KAWS, opened a new show titled Ohhh... down in 'ol Tokyo last night at Takashi Murakami's gallery Kaikai Kiki. Primer for the uninitiated:
- KAWS is a graffiti writer turned gallery sensation from Jersey City, which I'm told is in New Jersey. We are big fans and have previously posted about his work here, here, and OMG BOBA FETT here.
- Tokyo is the largest city in Japan with a population of 13.2 million. The food is fucking great.
- Takashi Murakami is an artist specializing in awesomeness. His artistic style is referred to as superflat. His artwork was displayed at Versailles. That's Versailles, built by the Sun King Louis XVI. He's kind of a big deal.
