Yoshitomo Nara: Drawings 1984-2013

Yoshitomo Nara: Drawings 1984 - 2013 focuses on the internationally acclaimed Japanese artist's prolific drawing output of the past 30 years. Rendered in colored pencil and acrylic, Nara's drawings are executed on a variety of paper types, such as found envelopes, stationery and inexpensive lined sheets, and deftly fuse Japanese visual traditions such as manga and anime with Western modernism and elements of American pop culture. The artist's ever-increasing cast of childlike, vulnerable but sinister characters has won him a devoted following around the world. With an abundance of color plates, the catalogue includes reproductions of early works never publicly exhibited and omitted from the artist's catalogue raisonné, as well as an essay by Masue Kato. The volume is published in conjunction with a large-scale exhibition of Nara's paintings, drawings, and sculptures at Blum & Poe, Los Angeles, in Spring 2014.
