Yoshitomo Nara at the Yokohama Museum

Unforgettable at first sight. Such describes the children and animals that NARA Yoshitomo depicts. They have a variety of expressions- some look defiant and aggressive while others seem melancholic or as if in contemplation. Behind their cute appearance lies the suggestion of a strong will and inexplicable feelings, reminding us of the depth of human psychology in which opposite emotions can coexist, and stimulating our creative imagination.
