7 editions from Yoshitomo NARA
Yoshitomo Nara (b. 1959) is a Japanese artist best known for his powerful portraits with eyes that appear simultaneously sweet and sinister. A contemporary of Takashi Murakami, Nara has been influenced by popular culture in both Eastern and Western society. His versatile practice explores themes of isolation, rebellion, and spirituality through printmaking, painting, sculpture, ceramics, and installations.
Sponsoring social skateboarding projects benefiting at-risk youth, THE SKATEROOM and Yoshitomo Nara bring you 7 editions featuring the artist’s trademark neo-pop visuals during a large solo exhibition at the LACMA (Los Angeles) in 2020/21. This exhibition is currently at the Yuz Museum (Shanghai, China).
Yoshitomo NARA x Yuz Museum Collection
The collection, which appears alongside the Yoshitomo Nara exhibition at Yuz Museum in Shanghai, is comprised of four exciting new editions – one solo, two triptychs and the artist’s first pentaptych released under THE SKATEROOM.
Featuring Untitled (Schrödinger), 2002; Light Haze Day, 2020; Miss Margaret, 2016; In The Water, 2019; this latest collection celebrates some of the artist’s most iconic works, with each edition interplaying the sweet and sinister elements which makes Nara’s style both unsettling and deeply beautiful.
