Takashi Murakami & Virgil Abloh - New Now & Design Hong Kong Sunday, November 26, 2023 | Phillips
  • “I identified with 'superflat' as a description of culture and people at the time. That’s my entry point into his visual vocabulary and the work. So from that stand-point, but even more so the role of contemporary artists in society, I connect with how his work faces people. I thought that it was powerful if we did something together, within this space.”
    — Virgil Abloh on Takashi Murakami
