Quote
"Yoshitomo Nara (born 4 January 1959 in Hirosaki, Japan) is a contemporary Japanese pop artist. He currently lives and works in Tokyo, though his artwork has been exhibited worldwide. Nara received his B.F.A. (1985) and an M.F.A. (1987) from the Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music. Between 1988 and 1993, Nara studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, in Germany. Nara has had nearly 40 solo exhibitions since 1984. He is represented in New York City by Marianne Boesky Gallery and in Los Angeles by Blum & Poe."

"Nara first came to the fore of the art world during Japan's Pop art movement in the 1990s. The subject matter of his sculptures and paintings is deceptively simple: most works depict one seemingly innocuous subject (often pastel-hued children and animals drawn with confident, cartoonish lines) with little or no background. But these children, who appear at first to be cute and even vulnerable, sometimes brandish weapons like knives and saws. Their wide eyes often hold accusatory looks that could be sleepy-eyed irritation at being awoken from a nap—or that could be undiluted expressions of hate."

"Nara, however, does not see his weapon-wielding subjects as aggressors. 'Look at them, they [the weapons] are so small, like toys. Do you think they could fight with those?' he says. 'I don't think so. Rather, I kind of see the children among other, bigger, bad people all around them, who are holding bigger knives…'"

The manga and anime of his 1960s childhood are both clear influences on Nara's stylized, large-eyed figures. Nara subverts these typically cute images, however, by infusing his works with horror-like imagery. This juxtaposition of human evil with the innocent child may be a reaction to Japan's rigid social conventions."

"The punk rock music of Nara's youth has also influenced the artist's work. Recalling a similar – if more unsettling – image of rebellious, violent youth, Nara's art embraces the punk ethos. That said, Nara has also cited traditions as varied as Renaissance painting, literature, illustration, and graffiti as further inspiration."

"The journey of Yoshitomo Nara+graf finally got to an old brick house in Hirosaki-city, Aomori prefecture in Japan in the summer of 2006. All the huts created in the past exhibitions were gathered there and new huts were additionally created and also installed. As a result, there emerged a town of 44 huts in total - it was the 'A to Z' exhibition that no one had ever seen before."
