New Angles: daily inspiration

Nara Yoshitomo

Posted in art by menno1976 on September 30, 2009

When my dad saw Japanese artist Nara Yoshitomo’s Puff Marshie at the outdoor ArtZuid exhibition in Amsterdam he didn’t know what to think of it. He first thought of it as cute, then a little creepy and yes…also intriguing. I think Nara’s work gained popularity exactly because of that juxtaposition.

If you happen to be in Amsterdam before October 26, 2009 check out ArtZuid, the exhibition along the “Apollolaan” and ” Minervalaan”.
