Takashi Murakami goes hip-hop
A link to Kanye West's new(?) video "Good Morning," which is directed by one of my FAVORITE artists, Takashi Murakami. I can't find a version that will allow me to embed on the blog, but here's a still photo to tantalize you. I love the little hip-hop bear with rainbow, glossy eyes and some of the first shots of him waking up in the morning. I also love the moment when he gets swallowed by the cloud-monster. Some of the appearances by traditional Murakami iconography are fun for a long-time fan like me, too. I don't think you'll be sorry if you take three minutes to watch.
