Here's one for the diaries next month and one we certainly won't be missing.

Gagosian Gallery announces an exhibition of new paintings by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami.

Beneath its bright and playful appearance, Murakami's art deftly challenges the established dichotomies of high art and popular culture, East and West, present and past, life and death, humor and gravity, skepticism and belief. Visually, his work merges the dystopic worlds of popular animé and manga cartoons with the ultra-refined techniques of traditional Nihonga painting.

The show will run from FEBRUARY 10th until APRIL 9th

Gasosian Gallery | 17-19 Davies Street | London
