For Yoshitomo Nara’s fourth solo show at Marianne Boesky Gallery, the Japanese pop artist pairs new paintings and drawings with two large-scale sculptures.  Created with his collaborative group YNG – formally known as “Yoshitomo Nara + graf – the two stylized pine tree abodes are made of reclaimed wood and recall the feeling of a woodman’s cottage or some surreal abode.  The interiors are filled with sketches and doodles created in the artist’s hand, along with stuffed animals that match the playful, fairy-tale feeling of Nara’s work.

Artist Yoshitomo Nara – via New York Post.

Yoshitomo Nara may be more well-known for his doe-eyed cartoon girls than for delinquent behavior, but he’s received a storm of publicity in New York this week for his arrest on charges of “resisting arrest, making graffiti, criminal mischief, possession of graffiti tools and damaging property” for drawing a smiley face on the wall of the Union Square L stop.  (Perhaps he’s been hanging around Nate Lowman?)  According to Art in America, the artist subsisted on peanut butter sandwiches and milk for two days in the city jail, “which he optimistically described as ‘a nice experience in my life,’ saying it was ‘like in the movies,’ a small space filled with all manner of people he would not otherwise meet.”

During the investigation, detectives learned that the defendants were expecting a large shipment of cocaine on September 2. Throughout the day the defendants’ movements were monitored and by early evening both men were detained, searched and arrested.

In addition, investigators executed several search warrants on September 2, searching three Providence residences and a vehicle. More than 1.2 kilograms of cocaine, more than $17,200 in cash, a semi-automatic pistol and various items used in the preparation, packaging and sale of cocaine were seized. website 2000 honda accord
