Blake Gopnik writes an article about Japan's most famous artist, Takashi Murakami in today's Washington Post.
"Murakami profits from the way his work lives halfway between fine art and consumer goods. But that makes the work more effective, not less. In taking in his art, we don't just get to watch a tidy picture of consumerism as it does its dirty work. We end up wading in the muck." - Blake Gopnik
