If you caught the latest Architectural Digest (AD) Open Door tour of queen Momager, Kris Jenner's Hidden Hills Home, you may have caught a glimpse of her dining room with a painting of a girl with her tongue sticking out. If you were wondering who it’s by, it's by none other than Japanese artist, Yoshimoto Nara.
WHO IS YOSHIMOTO NARA?
Yoshimoto Nara (奈良 美智) is a Japanese artist who rose to fame in the 90s. Combining a mix of Eastern and Western influence, through punk rock music and manga, many of his artwork portrays images of innocent yet sinister paintings of children and animals. Unsettling to some, others have become huge fans of his artwork through his exhibitions held in Tokyo, London and LA.
Having gained prominence in the art scene alongside Takeshi Murakami (the artist behind the super popular Louis Vuitton’s “Multicolore” monogram collection), many of his large paintings fetch in the millions. 💸But that doesn’t mean you can’t own a piece of his artwork yourself. You can find his affordable merchandise at the MoMA design stores which make as great presents for your art aficionados. 😉
By the way, did you catch our latest Tokyo Creative Play (TC Play) video? We did our “Architectural Digest Open Door” esque tour of our office. Not quite up to Kris Jenner’s scale,😅but it’s located in one of the beautiful districts of Tokyo—Daikanyama & Meguro. 👌🏼
And for those of you wondering, where do you film all of our TC Play videos? We film it in the heart of Tokyo, Shibuya so check it out below if you are interested! 😉
