Takashi Murakami in sculpture

From collaborations with Louis Vuitton to mass market figurines available to all, Murakami has been dealing in the three-dimensional for sometime. His Lonesome Cowboy sculpture (directly below) broke auction records by going under the hammer at Sotheby’s for $15 million. Murakami’s sculpture is as ‘in your face’ and lurid as his work in any other media, these cartoonish characters loom at you in gigantic proportions. They are unforgettable and most importantly they sell!
