Famed Japanese Artist Yoshitomo Nara’s New Works
Why We Recommend it
Yoshitomo Nara’s singular and uncanny visages return to Hong Kong, in an exhibit that will feature new works by the artist including paintings, drawings and ceramics.
As one of the fathers and central figures of the Japanese neo-Pop movement, Nara’s work expresses the struggle to find an identity in a world fractured by war, rapid modernisation, and an omnipresent visual culture.
Influenced by elements of popular culture such as anime, manga, Walt Disney cartoons, and punk rock, Yoshitomo Nara creates paintings, sculptures, and drawings of adorable-yet-sinister childlike characters.
This exhibit inaugurates Pace Gallery’s new and second outpost in the city, in the H Queen’s building.
