Description

Created in 2003 as a commentary on the Bush administration, Yoshitomo Nara’s ‘Fuckin’ Politics!’ has become even more iconic and relevant in the Trump era. Here, Nara uses his signature childlike character and floating text to express an exasperated attitude towards society and the modern political arena. Like most of his drawings, this print is characterized by simple, bold lines and an empty background.

About Yoshitomo Nara

Yoshitomo Nara (Japanese, b.1959) lives and works in Tokyo. His work draws on his childhood experiences of spending time alone with only his imagination, comic books, and family pets. As a result, much of his work includes images of seemingly innocent, wide-eyed and comic book-like children and dogs. His nightmarish graphics, for which he has gained an international cult following, are simultaneously vulnerable and provocative, and stand as a critical affront to the rigidness of certain aspects of Japan’s social conventions.
