The Guardian

Does the Bristol-born graffiti legend have an impersonator in Cumbria?

Matilda Battersby  Wednesday 28 January 2015

Takashi Murakami joins U.N.-sponsored event to school Asian children

NEW YORK – Artist Takashi Murakami joined the leaders of UNICEF, Spanish soccer club FC Barcelona and the director of the Reach Out To Asia campaign in New York on Friday to launch a joint drive to improve the lives of marginalized children in Bangladesh, Indonesia and Nepal.

The “1 in 11″ campaign involves artists and world-famous athletes, including Argentine soccer superstar Lionel Messi and American tennis pro Serena Williams, to raise global awareness of the fact that 58 million out of 650 million children of primary school age, or 1 in 11 youngsters, are not in classrooms.

“Through my participation in this campaign I have been learning a lot about the actual condition of the children around the world,” Murakami said.

“If participation in the campaign can help improve the situation even little by little, it would be wonderful,” he said.

Murakami is one of 17 artists who will donate works to a major auction at Sotheby’s in London on Feb. 12.

The subject is Michael Brown, though the image looks more like Obama (the ears?) repeated 5 times in a manner which ironically is a bit reminiscent of Warhol’s multiple gun toting Elvis image . The wall is right opposite Cargo night club and sits facing a couple of famous Bansky images, which also reminds us that Bambi has been often acclaimed (without foundation) as the female Banksy.
