Mr. : Nobody Dies

KaiKai Kiki artist Mr. has a new show at Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris. Mr.'s work is never what it seems. From the surface, you would think his manga and anime inspired characters are cute and innocent, but they are usually portrayed in a sexual or adult context. Oftentimes, he plays with their sexuality, and the young girls will have large male genitalia, or the little boys will have breasts. My favorite part of his work is usually the eyes- sometimes he paints whole other worlds in his characters eyes. I'm sure this show will delve even deeper into the 'children in adult circumstances' theme.
