About the Artist
About Yoshitomo Nara
Nara has assembled a cult-like following centered around his child-like illustrations—however the themes surrounding his work touch on broader social and cultural topics, such as violence and the rigidity of social structures in Japan. Though he works mainly in painting and drawing, he also experiments in sculpture and installations.
Since his first solo exhibition at Blum and Poe Gallery in 1984, Nara has had nearly 40 solo exhibitions worldwide, from Iceland to Japan to France to the United States.Read Less
