About The Work

Artspace is proud to present a new, exclusive limited edition by iconic Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, entitled Miss Spring.

Miss Spring (2012/2021) is available as an edition of 100 prints, produced in Tokyo under the direction of the artist. Each print comes accompanied by a hardback copy of the 2020 Phaidon monograph Yoshitomo Nara, a bespoke print portfolio, and a numbered certificate of authenticity with registered serial number and publisher’s stamp.

Nara’s recent works are recognized by a lively color palette and a distinctive genre of bust portraits that emerged in the early-2000s, exemplified in Miss Spring. In years since, the artist has developed a devoted following internationally, and images of children from this period are considered among his most important and sought-after compositions. Featuring an enticing ice-cream pink background and employing an array of painterly textures—spherical flecks suspended in the girl’s hair, square swathes of jewel tones on her sweater, and speckles of fleshy pinks and whites on her cheeks—Miss Spring presents an independent, confident girl with emotional complexity and limitless promise. 

Miss Spring is presented in partnership with the 2021 TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art Gala and Auction, for which Yoshitomo Nara has been named this year’s artist honoree. Proceeds from the sale of the limited edition will benefit the Dallas Museum of Art and amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research.
