Takashi Murakami Interviewed by Nowness

June 14th, 2013

Takashi Murakami is featured this week in a video interview with Nowness Magazine, discussing his recently opened shows in Los Angeles and Hong Kong, his film Jellyfish Eyes, and his attempts to make work in the aftermath of the earthquake and fallout from the Fukushima power plant disaster. “Those natural disasters birthed in me a desire to understand spirituality,” he says. “When I consider what art means to humanity, capitalism and the money game can longer be the main themes of my work.  As an artist, I can heal people.  Now, I feel art is just about healing.”
