Images from MADSAKI’s Here Today, Gone Tomorrow (2017)

Madsaki had his second Kaikai Kiki solo exhibit with Here Today, Gone Tomorrow at the Kaikai Kiki Gallery in Roppongi. Madsaki’s inspiration comes from his wife, who appears in many of the images that pay tribute to the work of Nobuyoshi Araki. In the introduction to this show, Murakami describes his discovery of Madsaki’s work and their first meeting. Initially unimpressed by Madsaki’s demeanor, Murakami later grew to appreciate Madsaki’s candor and talent. Madsaki’s theme revolves around his love for his wife and our ultimate fate, transience.
