"AMERICA TOO"

AMERICA TOO is the third collaboration this year by Murakami & Abloh; with previous shows “Future History” being in London & “Technicolor 2” in Paris it was only a matter of time before the duo brought a show to USA. The two have a natural chemistry that seems to work well whenever they decide to collaborate on a project. This is not limited to just art, but fashion as well…with Virgil Abloh being the Creative Director of Louis Vuitton, it is likely for them to work together under the high fashion brand seeing as how Takashi Murakami started a relationship with Louis when he designed this bag in 2003. But for now we can appreciate the work they do have out, Gagosian in Beverly Hills was host of “AMERICA TOO” which was on display from October 10th thru the 25th.

What inspired you?

My inspiration comes from within. The idea of creating is exciting yet peaceful to me.

I use everyday things we as people see on a day to day basis around us.

It could be a bird I see flying but the colors on the bird could give me an idea 💡for a new color way.

Life is art and art is life . Life is my daily inspiration when it comes to creating.

What advice do you have for the youth aspiring to be artist?

For the ones coming up behind me (youth), be sure to always follow your creative heart .

It will lead you places . Always stick to your creativity and don’t change it for anyone.

That’s how you remain unique, how you remain you.

It’s easy to get lost on what’s going on with other artists or what’s the wave at the moment.

But stay original, stay you & never give up on that. Consistency is key.
