Lot Details

“GuneGune DOB Special Version” represents one of Takashi Murakami’s first forays into his now well-known practice in printmaking. Produced in 1997 with what was at the time regarded as the highest print technology of the moment, this large-scale print was manufactured by the Dai Nippon Printing Company under the auspices of Hiropon Factory, Murakami’s precursor to what was to develop into his company Kaikai Kiki. “GuneGune DOB Special Version” portrays an early morphing and mutating version of his now iconic and well-recognized Mr. DOB, a form of self-portraiture and pop icon in its own right.

This print includes full margins in the silver backing paper, which include printed crop marks and printing data from this high-tech production. The print is in pristine condition, and is packaged in its original wrapping from Kaikai Kiki.
