Can you tell us six valuable things you learnt from the six months you spent as an assistant for Takashi Murakami?

 

“Six things in six months? Alright. One, how to mix colour. Two, how to wet sand gesso to a glass like texture. Three, how to get organized and disciplined. Four, how to choose colours. Five,  patience and six, how to take what I learned and apply it to how I wanted to paint. Murakami was always super nice and made himself available to answer questions, offer advice, whatever. I just always want to give that guy his due for being stand up or at least while I was there, who knows since.”
