Takashi Murakami's long-awaited solo exhibition at the Mori Art Museum features his 100 meter long painting: 500 Arhats. The work is one of the largest paintings ever produced of its kind and embodies Japan’s rich art history. Further, the bold, colorful Kanji identity amplifies Murakami’s playful and classical approach, by bringing forth hybridized traditional and contemporary, Japanese and Chinese characters.
