Renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami recently opened his latest exhibition of work titled Flowers & Skulls. If you can’t make it to Hong Kong (lazy), the images are a must see. Colorfully animated flowers, which often symbolize peace and happiness, come together with spirited skulls which signify death and mortality. The contemporary artist achieves an enchanting balance between the opposing themes that somehow work when occupying the same space. Flowers & Skulls is currently on display at the Gagosian Gallery in Hong Kong through February 2013.
