Hiroshi Mori: Laughing Quietly to Myself
Time Out says
Japanese artist Hiroshi Mori presents new paintings that are a mash-up of anime and pop art
A mashup of Japanese animation and manga culture integrated with new technology, Japanese artist Hiroshi Mori’s new paintings are an interesting take on pop art and some of the most iconic religious portraits of the Renaissance era. Through symbolic iconography, Hiroshi depicts the fears and hopes of men. Expect to view works like the Mona Lisa in anime and 8-bit style and Andy Warhol’s Campbell Soup series with video game references.
