Yoshitomo Nara (b. 1959) is a contemporary Japanese artist best known for his Neo-Pop paintings featuring the innocent motifs and buoyant style of children's books and comics. Nara's most frequent subjects are wide-eyed, cartoonish children and animals, executed in a flattened, economical style. Snippets of Japanese, English, or German text sometimes float within the compositions. Nara is also a prolific sculptor and draughtsman. He has had solo exhibitions at Blum & Poe, Santa Monica, CA (1995, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2004, 2008); the Museum of Contemporary Art, Nagoya, Japan (1995); Santa Monica Museum of Art, CA (2000); the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IL (2000); the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland, OH (2003); Pace Prints Gallery, New York, NY (2010); and the Asia Society Museum, New York, NY (2010), among many others. He lives and works in Tochigi, Japan.
