Publisher's Description
Artist Yoshitomo Nara's work has received huge international acclaim in recent years and has been presented in many publications, yet none have offered such an intimate portrait of the artist and his process as this book does.

Photographer Mie Morimoto worked with Nara for six months to document how he develops nuance and texture in his art, including his signature ''enfant terribles'' paintings and weeping dog sculptures. The book includes never before published excerpts from Nara's Journals and photographs documenting the work shown in his travelling exhibition ''I Don't Mind If You Forget Me.''
