One of the most famed and iconic artists from Japan, Yoshitomo Nara just opened a new solo show of older works, "Drawings : 1988~2018 Last 30 years" at Takashi Murakami's Kaikai Kiki Gallery in Tokyo this past weekend. The show is full of experiments and early sketch ideas of his now signature characters that are normally expanded onto canvas or sculpture, and in some cases, products and merchandise.
