I came across Takeshi ‘Beat’ Kitano many years ago during a foreign film binge which lasted throughout most of my university years.  Then, I was blown away by Hana-bi (trans. fireworks), one of the many movies he has written, directed and starred in.  Aside from his work as a director, writer and actor, Kitano-san is a television personality and comedian in his native Japan.  And just because those things don’t seem to keep him sufficiently occupied, he also paints.

The Fondation Cartier in Paris is showcasing his painterly work until September 2010.
