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.
