Traveling with Yoshitomo Nara

Bought this DVD last April. I have no idea who Yoshitomo Nara is until I bought this DVD. He`s a a contemporary Japanese Pop artist. He currently lives and works in Tokyo, though his artwork has been exhibited worldwide. Nara has had nearly 40 solo exhibitions since 1984. He is represented in New York City by Marianne Boesky Gallery and in Los Angeles by Blum & Poe.

This documentary film shows his largest work to date, following him on a remarkable 240-day international road trip as he sets out to create an imaginary town(the best part of this film!!!) populated by his iconic images and enigmatic sculptures.

Nara scouts inspiration as he travels to Seoul, New York, Osaka, London adn Bangkok as well as other locations collaborating with members of the design team GRAF and encountering friends, journalist and fans along the way.

Valium also maximizes the depressive effects of alcohol, narcotics, other sedatives/hypnotics and muscle relaxants which can lead to increased risk of psychological dependence.
