Takashi Murakami’s first solo exhibition in San Francisco delivers the artist’s signature combination of fun, spectacle, and playful social commentary by way of vibrantly colored, larger-than-life paintings and sculptures.


Takashi Murakami: Unfamiliar People — Swelling of Monsterized Human Ego includes the premiere of several new creations from Murakami, an internationally recognized artist and a major figure in global pop culture.

This monster-themed exhibition at the Asian Art Museum explores the hopes and fears of the digital age while incorporating themes from the folklore and art traditions of Japan.


On view from Sep. 15, 2023 through Feb. 12, 2024, Murakami: Monsterized is a colorful crowd-pleaser suitable for all ages (and a must-see for fans of anime, manga, and Japanese art or pop culture).
