Yoshitomo Nara: A Bit Like You and Me...

Yoshitomo Nara has earned a fervent international following for his cute-but-twisted pictures of children and animals, which must be some of the most instantly recognisable images in contemporary Japanese art. As he returns to the Yokohama Museum of Art for the first time since it hosted his inaugural large-scale solo exhibition back in 2001, he'll be trying something a little different. Taking its titled from a Beatles song, A Bit Like You and Me... finds the artist working in sculpture for the first time, which he says helped him 'detach' himself from his creations. The bronze sculptures are displayed alongside Nara's more familiar drawings and paintings, all of which are newly created.
