Nice to See You Again: Yoshitomo Nara’s Rebellious Heroine


Yoshitomo Nara is one of the most important living Japanese artists and his work speaks volumes in the Pop movement. Nice to See You Again, 1996 embodies the very best of Pop Art and carries with it these sensations of revenge and of threat. Nara often uses children as a symbol, here we have a single heroine figure set against a vast expanse of periwinkle blue, to reveal our rebellious nature within. In this episode of Expert Voices, Lucius Elliot takes us through Nara’s process of inner discovery and explains why his art is so relevant today. This will be part of The Now Evening Auction on 18 Novemember.
