Dragon in the Clouds

Takashi Murakami’s latest work is on display at the Gagosian Gallery opening in Rome. The new piece is simply titled “Dragon in the Clouds” and features two dragons in monochromatic blue and red. It’s definitely very different from his usual work, most evidently the lack of a huge color palette.

According to Murakami, “the combination of red and blue with a creature that has long been thought as a symbol of one’s destiny is my attempt to reaffirm my devotion to art – the creative process for the paintings resembled a prayer offering.”
