Additional Information:Yoshitomo Nara’s depiction of mischievous yet endearing characters that include children and animals, have become an icon in today’s Contemporary Japanese art scene. Inspired by a lonely childhood, picture books and punk rock music, Nara explores themes of isolation, rebellion, and spirituality through a sweet and innocent lens. The present work, a screenprint on cotton, exhibits a reoccurring figure in Nara’s artworks as well as his children’s book, The Lonesome Puppy. With its eyes cast downward the sweet creature looks defeated while holding with its paw a flag pole bearing a peace sign.
