Yoshitomo NARA Japanese - Born in 1959 Doggy Radio - 2011

Estimate: HKD20,000 - HKD30,000

Description: Yoshitomo NARA Japanese - Born in 1959 Doggy Radio - 2011 Polymer and fiberglass stereo with FM radio, bluetooth, USB port, headphone jack and Yamaha speaker system Inscribed with the artist's name, titled and numbered "2547/3000" on Doggy Radio certificate plaque Yoshitomo Nara is among the most influential Japanese artists of the generation that emerged in the 1990s. His paintings, drawings and sculptures reflect the artist's childhood, lonely and sad but full of creativity and imagination. Children and animals, recurring characters in his work, are marked by the influence of Japanese manga, punk art, street art and American cartoons. His palette and compositional balance reveal a profound knowledge of the great Renaissance masters. Loneliness, aggression, and horror - conveyed by objects, weapons brandished by children, the title of his works - mingles with the apparent innocence and naivety of his subjects. As his work evolves, texts, objects, and scenery disappear to make room for a subject lost in an empty canvas, whose piercing gaze confronts the viewer directly. This economy of form is also found in his sculptures, often made from fiberglass. With simple figures and striking associations, Yoshitomo Nara denounces the universal loss of innocence. h: 33,70 w: 43,50 d: 22,20 cm Commentaire : A certificate will be delivered to the buyer Yoshitomo NARA Japonais - Né en 1959 Doggy Radio - 2011 Polymer, fibres de verre, radio stéréo FM, bluetooth, port USB, prise de casque et système d'eceintes Yamaha Signé, titré et numéroté "/3000"; contresigné en japonais et numéroté Yoshitomo Nara est l'un des artistes japonais les plus influents de la génération issue des années 1990. Ses peintures, ses dessins et ses sculptures reflètent l'enfance de l'artiste, solitaire et triste mais riche de créativité et d'imaginaire. Les personnages récurrents de ses œuvres, enfants et animaux, sont marqués par l'influence des mangas japonais, de l'art punk, du Street Art et des dessins animés américains. Sa palette et l'équilibre de ses compositions démontrent une grande connaissance des grands maîtres de la Renaissance. A l'apparente innocence et naïveté de ses sujets, se mêlent la solitude, l'agressivité et l'horreur portée par les objets, les armes que brandissent les enfants ou par le titre des œuvres. Dans l'évolution de son travail, les textes, les objets et les décors tendent à disparaître pour laisser place au sujet, perdu dans une toile vide, dont le regard perçant se confronte directement au spectateur. Cette économie de la forme se retrouve également dans ses sculptures, souvent réalisées à partir de fibre de verre. Yoshitomo Nara dénonce, par des figures simples et des associations frappantes, une perte universelle de l'innocence. h: 33,70 w: 43,50 d: 22,20 cm Commentaire : Un certificat sera remis à l'acquéreur
