The Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain presents a space designed by the renowned Japanese filmmaker, comic and TV presenter Beat Takeshi Kitano. The space is a continuation of the Paris exhibition, Gosse de peintre presented in Paris at the Fondation Cartier from March 11 through September 12 of this year.
At the stand, visitors are invited to color drawings made by the artist.
A Necessaire Gosse de peintre is the centerpiece of the space. It is an incredible carrying case which assembles all the necessary accessories for the "perfect painter". Created by Cartier, and inspired by a Beat Takeshi painting, the Necessaire Gosse de peintre will be auctioned at a later date with the proceeds going to the charity of Beat Takeshi's choice. It is fantastic!!!
The painting that inspired the case. The case is in the shape of a whale and the painting is embossed on the top of the case.
