{Yoshitomo Nara} [ならよしとも] <奈良美智>

and many more...

    Who is Yoshitomo Nara? 

    Date of birth 4/1/1959
    Place of birth Hirosaki, Japan
    Occupation Pop artist

    Yoshitomo Nara is famous for his drawing of a doe eyed girl. The girl he drew has large, innocent-looking eyes but looks fierce in some of the paintings. Here are some of the paintings I found. There are more at http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=all&q=yoshitomo+nara&m=text


    Other than his paintings 。。。

    This drawing was found on the stairs down the block from TAC headquarters, NY. (Taken from http://blog.theartcollectors.com/2009/03/02/on-view-yoshitomo-nara-at-marianne-boesky/#more-1867)

    Before his opening at Marianne Boesky Gallery, Yoshitimo Nara was arrested for drawing a smiley face on the wall of the First Avenue L-train stop at East Village subway, New York but the charge was eventually dropped. The graffiti was later being wiped clean. He had also drawn on the wall of Niagara Bar in the East Village but the owner didn't charge him and preserve the drawing .
