Art Works reveals the tension between the high and low brow qualities present in artist Osamu Watanabe's work. His sculptures of animals, birds and everyday objects are excessively decorated with kitsch fake foods such as ice-cream, fruit, candy, and jewels. This anthology of the artist's work is recommended for anyone who has fascination with Japanese contemporary pop art and culture. Texts in English and Japanese.
96 pages, 19 x 25 cm, hardcover, BNN (Tokyo).
