    Pre-Lot Text

    They are all self-portraits in a way. But the emotions that I feel can, of course, be universal. Often the characters are representations of me but they are also representations of the countless others who identify with them.
    Yoshitomo Nara


    Exhibited

    6th Shanghai Biennale, September-November 2006.
