That's much better

Late last year a pink billboard was put up on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles advertising a Murakami exhibition at the LA Museum of Contemporary Art.

Not long after it went up it was tagged by a couple of LA graff artists.

Seventy two hours later the billboard was gone.

Censorship? Theft? Publicity stunt?

According to a recent story in the LA Weekly it seems Murakami saw an image of the billboard on the internet and loved it so much he had the poster taken down and sent to him in Tokyo.

Mystery solved I guess.
