Hiroshi Sugito’s compositions are comprised of both abstract and concrete recurring motifs, often stylized beyond immediate recognition. For example, his paintings feature mountaintops, waves, blossoms, birds, military airplanes, missiles, fire, windows, and especially curtains; these are not used to convey conventional narrative, but rather as pictorial elements. In other works, Sugito creates alternate visualizations, for example, of sounds or nature. Sugito’s work is also known for its use of translucent layers—an effect he achieves by layering acrylic paint and dry pigment—lack of linear perspective, and generous use of empty space. Though he is deeply affected by traditions of western painting, Sugito is strongly influenced by his training in traditional Japanese painting techniques. More recently, the artist has begun to experiment with three-dimensional media.

Yoshitomo Nara
Japanese, b. 1959
Follow

Influenced by elements of popular culture such as anime, manga, Walt Disney cartoons, and punk rock, Yoshitomo Nara creates paintings, sculptures, and drawings of adorable-yet-sinister childlike characters. Painted with simple bold lines, primary colors, and set against empty backgrounds, these small children and animals often share the canvas with text, knives, plants, and cardboard boxes, among other recurring elements. As one of the fathers and central figures of the Japanese neo-Pop movement, Nara’s work expresses the struggle to find an identity fractured by war, rapid modernization, and an omnipresent visual culture. Nara’s sculptures, made primarily from fiberglass, and his drawings on postcards, envelopes, and scraps of paper, further this exploration using the same elegance of line and simple palette as his paintings.
