Yoshitomo Nara at Blum and Poe


Mr Yoshitomo Nara is having an exhibition at Blum and Poe this weekend in Culver City. I was limited as to what I could photograph since installs were still going on. 30 years of drawings, giant sculptures (really huge), giant paintings (of course), and new and different types of works on “billboards”. I met Nara in 2000 or 2001 and although it’s been a bit, he’s the same guy. He said something like, “it felt like yesterday” when we met, but for me, it seemed like ages ago. I wonder what that means. Below: we’re at GR2 and below that, he’s polishing a piece.
