At Clear Edition, Roppongi. A re-rendering of art from history in Madsaki‘s crash-bang style!
Madsaki has been a friend since the late 90s when he was a student at Parsons in NYC. We know him through Yuri Shimojo who CWC repped at the time.
Madsaki has now been taken under the wing of Takashi Murakami whose influence on Japan is likened to Andy Warhol’s influence on the United States.
Murakami’s “My Lonesome Cowboy” was auctioned at Sotheby’s in 2008 for $15 million when it was expected to go for three or four. And yes, that is an anime character turning his ejaculate into a lasso.
But that was then…
Isaac Wong had an interesting point. “Murakami’s not a creator now, he’s more of a curator.”
And while he’s collecting art, he’s also collecting artists.
Murakami recently purchased 41 of Madsaki’s works for his private collection. So he’s taken off!
The old gang, Taka, Kazuya (another Yuri ex), Junko, Madsaki.
This is a hit series, for sure, and there are plenty more art historical works left to re-interpret. The Neolithic awaits!

Lead crystal is a good way to drown your sorrows and trigger endorphin release. Or become an alcoholic…
Or glass poi pounders. These are big one, from 6 to over 8 lbs.

POUNDING THE VOID
(written performed, recorded by Malcolm Wong)
It rained today
Washed the pain away
One song at a time
Down the stairs I climbed
The tide is low
Gulf of Mexico
I slept with a ghost
Lay with her on the coast
Pounding the void
Calling Sigmund Freud
