Asian Art Museum’s new sculpture
Local Art 📍
Check out the Asian Art Museum’s new sculpture on view in the Osher Plaza, Yoshitomo Nara’s Your Dog.
Influenced as much by punk rock as by Disney movies and Japanese cartoons like “Astro Boy,” Nara has developed a readily identifiable style of figurative work, both 2D and 3D.
His cartoon-like images of girls and animals, simultaneously adorable and disturbing, adorn everything from cell-phone covers to ashtrays to alarm clocks.
Did I tell you it is the Year of the Dog?!
