The Protégé of Takashi Murakami
Born in 1969 in Cupa, Japan. Mr. is a Japanese contemporary artist, and a former protégé of Takashi Murakami. His art revolves around a so-called Lolita complex, and his art usually depicts young boys and girls in a anime/manga style. While his works seem quite innocent at first glance, there are sexual undertones, which thematically ties his art to the greater manga world in Japan. Mr.'s works have been showcased in Japan, France, USA, and the United Kingdom.
