Yoshitomo Nara: Nobody's Fool

Published in in conjunction with a major retrospective at the Asian Society Museum, this is the first comprehensive monograph on the work of art superstar Yoshitomo Nara. It assembles 20 years’ worth of paintings, sculptures and drawings that map the evolution of one of the most influential and internationally renowned artists working today. The book draws connections between Nara’s work and the sensibilities of youth subcultures worldwide. It focuses on themes of alienation and rebellion, particularly in relation to rock and punk music, the inspiration and subject of many of Nara’s works. Featuring artworks that have never before been reproduced, this is the book Nara’s legion of devoted followers have been waiting for.
