In France, the name of Takashi Murakami remains closely linked to his gallery owner, Emmanuel Perrotin, who made his reputation…

The king of Japanese Pop Art — with one of the 5 highest world quotations (KunstKompass classification)—is back with a highly awaited exhibition, inaugurated during FIAC, the 16th one in the gallery since his encounter in 93 with the star of contemporary art. This is what is called a long lasting story!

The return of Mr DOB

For the occasion, Emmanuel Perrotin has gone all out...  The exhibition will exceptionally take place in the amazing ballroom of the gallery on Rue de Turenne, usually reserved for very private events and the happy few…

Strong moment of the happening: the return of Mr DOB, an iconic character of the plastician with a sculpture inspired by Mickey Mouse and Sonic, alongside humoristic portraits of Mr DOB.
