Lot description
Edition of only 5. In perfect condition.

'Large Bunny' exemplifies the start of Aiko Nakagawa's move away from the art collective, Faile. The stenciled images of flowers and a bunny rabbit against a graffiti wall are representative of her personal interest in mixing pop and street art through mixed media.

Aiko Nakagawa (B. 1975) moved from her native Tokyo to New York in the late 1990s where she currently lives and works. Aiko started out as an artist assistant to fellow Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and went on to form the Brooklyn based international art collective, Faile in 1999 with artists Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. Faile quickly became one of the most recognizable urban artist groups in the world, working predominately in printmaking, stenciling, and painting. Aiko broke from the group in 2008. Her solo work demonstrates a collaboration between pop and street art with influences ranging from Hello Kitty to the Virgin Mary. Aiko’s large scale works employ a vibrant palette to playfully transform sexuality and ideals of beauty. Her works have recently been on view at Brooklyn Museum in NY, MACRO Future in Rome, the Deitch Project in Miami, and Shanghai MoCA in China as well as major galleries and museums in US, Europe and Asia.
