Like popular titles Kaws and Yayoi Kusama, this major Murakami monograph is dedicated to an artist whose popularity extends beyond art to design, street art, and fashion audiences. This Murakami volume surveys a larger span of the artist’s career than 2012’s Murakami: Ego. The first major monograph in 10 years on Murakami is the definitive mid-career survey of one of today’s most influential artists.
