From PACE GALLERY:
The drawings, some made on the backs of envelopes and postcards, show his signature characters, sardonic children who possess a startling emotional intensity. One of the leading artists of Japan's influential Neo-Pop movement, Nara fuses Japanese visual traditions and Western Modernism with elements of popular culture ranging from manga to American pop and punk music, the lyrics of which appear in many of his paintings and drawings.
