inspiration - Takashi Murakami

Takashi Murakami retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum - we make money not art

I love the cute and strange artwork of Murakami - although I am torn by his use of a factory of workers to help him produce his paintings. He designs them on a computer and has a team of people actually paint the canvases... it's a real cross between consumerism and fine art complete with plush dolls and keychains of his most popular characters.
