Exhibition by Yoshitomo Nara “A Bit Like You And Me…”
A Bunch of Bronze Statues Shown for the First Time
A solo exhibition by Yoshitomo NARA was hold in Yokohama Museum of Art. He is well-known with his cute little girls with sharp eyes. His works are loved by various types of people in the world; his drawing of a girl was used as the image of an anti-nuclear power plants demonstration. The solo exhibition at Yokohama Museum of Art is the second time since 2001. All but one works are the new. In particular, a bunch of bronze statues in the first room is shown for the first time. This exhibition in Yokohama, by the way, is already closed; the same exhibition is currently held at Contemporary Art Museum Kumamoto. All the photos here are taken at Yokohama Museum of Art.
