Yoshitomo Nara was born in 1959, in Japan’s Aomori Prefecture. In 1987, he completed the master’s program at Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music. In 1988, he traveled to Germany and enrolled in Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he studied and received his Meisterschüler under A.R.Penck. Nara lived and worked in Cologne from 1994 to 2000, before returning to Japan. In 1998, he had the experience of serving as a guest professor for a three-month period at UCLA, together with Takashi Murakami.

Nara’s best-known works, his paintings of children with glaring, challenging expressions, have won critical acclaim and international popularity. As one of Japan’s leading contemporary artists, Nara’s work is now in the collections of such prestigious institutions as the Museum of Modern Art New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
