As revealed by the artist on instagram, this year Takashi Murakami will dress up in a custom made outfit inspired by the Kanye West and Lil Pump "I Love It” music video. The exaggerated look is made up of a smiling flower print button-up, traditional Japanese camoflage pant, a gold “Hiropon” necklace and a pair of YEEZY slides.

“Hiropon” is the name of Murakami’s lauded sculpture from 2001 that serves as a physical representation of Japanese “Otaku” culture and its distinct representation of female sexuality.

The Artists wrote on his Instagram: "I found the music video of Kanye West (and Lil Pump )’s "I Love It” incredibly shocking. Its like you’re being served a raw, contemporary human being, delivered straight to you via YouTube, iTunes and Spotify. I felt as though I was served a fresh platter of ego sashimi. Even though the video steps out of the human ego’s safety zone, the ego is still somehow maintained... I don’t even know what I’m talking about, but all I can do is to bow down to it! And so I did this cosplay in my studio."

Spike Jonze produced the music video.

    In today’s digital age, navigating the online landscape can sometimes feel like trekking through a treacherous wilderness. Lately, I found myself ensnared in a web of deceit spun by a group of frvudsters, leaving me feeling helpless and devastated. However, amidst the chaos, I stumbled upon a beacon of hope – COINS RECOVERY WORLDWIDE a recovery agency that would become my saving grace.
    From the moment I reached out to them, their team exuded professionalism and empathy. They listened attentively as I recounted my harrowing ordeal, offering reassurance and guidance every step of the way. It took us only 18 hours to recover my entire pension which i initially lost.
    their impact extended far beyond mere financial restitution. In the midst of despair, they provided a beacon of light, restoring my faith in humanity and reaffirming that goodness still exists in this digital wilderness. Their unwavering dedication to their clients is nothing short of commendable, and I am eternally grateful for their invaluable assistance.

    HAVE YOU LOST YOUR CREDIT CARD? DO YOU WANT TO GET YOUR STOLEN BTC,USDT,OR ETH BACK?The feeling of losing one’s cryptocurrency can be extremely distressing,especially since it is nearly hard to get back a lost or stolen cryptocurrency coin.All that crosses a person’s mind when they are defrauded of their money when investing on a cryptocurrency platform is how to report the company and recover their losses.The majority of scam victims get in touch with their bank,wallet account provider,or law enforcement;a small number even hire an attorney to file a lawsuit against the business,but despite all of this stress,they still aren’t able to get their money back.Please,everyone should exercise caution when making financial investments.The use of cryptocurrency has made a great deal of people wealthy but also broke and desperate.I was referred to CYBERETRIEVE a few weeks ago,and with their help,I was able to recover every USDT coin that had been stolen.CYBERETRIEVE is a trustworthy and sincere company that I suggest if you want to recover your lost or stolen cryptocurrency.contact them via

    All you need is to hire an expert to help you accomplish that. If there’s any need to spy on your partner’s phone. From my experience I lacked evidence to confront my husband on my suspicion on his infidelity, until I came across ETHICALAHCKERS which many commend him of assisting them in their spying mission. So I contacted him and he provided me with access into his phone to view all text messages, call logs, WhatsApp messages and even her location. This evidence helped me move him off my life . I recommend you consult ETHICALHACKERS009 @ gmail.com OR CALL/TEXT ‪+1(716) 318-5536 or whatsapp +14106350697 if you need access to your partner’s phone

    They are heartless scammers, they ruined my life, by making me develop interest to invest my hard earned money. I deposited 10.7850 euros in June 2020, which was later turned to 98,908.00 euros including my pay out bonus, there was an impressive improvement in few days, 2 months later I had a car accident and needed money to pay my insurance access, Suddenly I was sent from Pillar to post, i tried reaching out to them to collect the money i invested to pay off my debts, they cut the live chats and got harassed from 1 to the other, until they told me I will forever be poor, then I realized that I was being scammed. I just wanted my money back! I was advised by a friend to seek for help from a recovery management to assist me recover my invested funds, God so kind i was able to reach out to a recovery guru BY

    The best thing that has ever happened in my life is how I won the lottery euro million mega jackpot. I am a man who believes that one day I will win the lottery. Finally, my dreams came true when I emailed DR ISIKOLO. and told him I needed the lottery numbers. I have spent so much money on a ticket just to make sure I win. But I never knew that winning was so easy until the day I met the spell caster online which so many people have talked about that he is very great at casting lottery spells, so I decided to give it a try. I contacted this great Doctor and he did a spell and he gave me the winning lottery numbers. But believe me when the draws were out I was among winners. I won $654.000USD. DR ISIKOLO truly you are the best, with these great Dr you can win millions of money through the lottery. I am so very happy to meet this great man now, I will forever be grateful to you dr.
