Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg

Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg is a detailed study on revered Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. Renowned for his work and affiliation with the likes of Kanye West and Louis Vuitton, this book focuses on Murakami’s non-commercial traits and dives into his efforts as a painter. The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg is a retrospective volume utilizing essays and illustrations to convey Murakami’s record as an artist. Having left his homeland to establish himself in the West, this text follows Murakami in relation to his artistry — from past to present — providing a previously unconsidered analysis. Focus points include the Tokyo art scene in the ’80s to ‘90s, Murakami’s balance between high and low art and Japan’s cultural influence over his work. Takashi Murakami: The Octopus Eats its Own Leg is a must have for fans of contemporary art — and especially for fans of Murakami.
