Last December, graffiti artists AUGER and REVOK modified a billboard advertising the Takashi Murakami exhibit at the L.A. MOCA. Their intervention was visible for less than two days, before the billboard was removed. The LA Weekly now reports that Murakami himself saw photos of the graffitied billboard online and thought it was "so wonderful, he had to have it for his collection". So apparently he arranged for it to be taken down and shipped to his studio in Japan.
The exhibition closes February 11th.
