schema:description"One of the most influential and internationally renowned artists working today. Best known for his images of devilishly cute and Sometimes menacing animals and children, Nara's work relates not only to Japanese kawaii (cute) popular culture, but also reflects the sensibilities of youth subcultures worldwide with their focus on alienation and rebellion. Yoshitomo Nara assembles twenty years worth of paintings, sculptures, photographs and drawings that map Nara's artistic evolution. The book and exhibition will make connections between Nara's work and Rock and Punk music, which have been both the inspiration and subject of many of his works."@en
