Published to mark three decades of his artistic activity, this collection contains approximately 100 works selected by Yoshitomo Nara himself, including new paintings. Most of his works depict a single, seemingly innocuous subject, often pastel-hued, large-eyed children or stylised animals. The looks that characterise many of his child-like subjects are especially peculiar, appearing at once mischievous, irritated, or accusatory. Others simply seem benign, patiently waiting until the observer moves on to the next one. This compilation of paintings is undoubtedly an essential volume for Nara’s devout fans, as well as newcomers to his work.
