yoshitomo nara

I was lucky enough to recieve a gorgeous little gift from Curt the other day in the form of a book of postcards by one of my favourite artists, Yoshitomo Nara. Based in Tokyo, he is one of the most influential contemporary artists in Japan. I love his oddball characters which are inspired by Japanese anime, poetry, graffiti and punk rock. Check out more of his work here.

We already have a little trio of his images on our living room wall (pic above) and I can't wait to get some little frames to display a few of these postcards in and maybe I will try and break free from my hoarding tendencies for once and even send some to a few people!
