Flowers & Skulls

Takashi Murakami at Gagosian Gallery

A VIP preview and a private dinner at Yung Kee Restaurant marked the opening of the new exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in Pedder Street, Central. “Takeshi Murakami: Flowers & Skulls” is the first Hong Kong exhibition for the prolific Japanese artist known for his self-described “superflat” style.

Hosted by Nick Simunovic, managing director of Gagosian Gallery in Asia, the events were attended by many noted collectors and artists, including the Honourable Ronald and Joanna Arculli, Kirk and May Beaton, Max Burger, KC and Amy Chow, Daniel Green, Claire Hsu-Vuchot, Christopher Jackson, Lumen Kinoshita, Greg Liu, Alan Lo, Chantal Miller, Robert and Stacey Morse, Dee Poon, Sigi and Fatima Unruh, Oliver Weisberg, Zeng Fanzhi.

In addition to some great food and fine wines, the lucky guests were treated to a performance by a Shaolin Wushu group with an unlikely cameo by Murakami himself.

The show will run through 9 February 9 at 7/F Pedder Building, Pedder Street.
