Renowned Japanese artist Yohsitomo Nara has been keeping busy these past few months. With his recent exhibit, “Greetings from a Place in My Heart”, appearing in the United Kingdom last year, along with other exhibitions at Denmark and Berlin, Nara’s work is now on display in Hong Kong! In his newest show, titled “Life is Only One”, Nara has placed a wide variety of art, sketches, mixed media pieces, and sculptures on display at the Asia Society HK Center, and asks viewers to participate in a dialogue with the artist on his works. The exhibit itself also features a number of interactive elements and events for visitors to participate in, including a exhibit where visitors can draw their own emotions, and have them projected onto a scree with other visitors’ feelings, as well as free scavenger hunts and postcard giveaways! The exhibit opened its doors on March 6th, and will remain open until July 26th.

Yoshitomo Nara, born in Hirosaki in 1959, is one of the most influential artists to emerge from Japan’s 1990s pop art movement. Studying at the Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music in the 1980s, and at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in Germany from 1988 to 1993, Nara has since assembled a cult-like following centered around his child-like illustrations. Drawing inspiration from the anime and manga characters that he was exposed to during his childhood, Nara creates characters, usually small children, who possess similar cartoon-like qualities, with highly stylized features and especially large eyes. However, Nara’s illustrations of children are often more menacing and devilish than they are cute and innocent. These images touch on broad social and cultural topics, such as violence and the rigidity of social structures in Japan. Since his first solo exhibition at Blum & Poe Gallery in 1984, Nara has had nearly 40 solo exhibitions worldwide, including Iceland, Japan, France, and the United States.
