人気のある「日本アーティスト」 トレヴァー・ブラウン個展「la nursery noire」 Popular solo exhibition by 'Japanese artist' Trevor Brown "la nursery noire"
One of the most famous contemporary artists from Japan, Trevor Brown トレヴァー・ブラウン, has actually an extremely popular & commercially successful exhibition, called “la nursery noire”, in Tokyo’s cultural center Shibuya.
Being one of his first collectors in the 1990’s, Trevor continues to execute superb, visually provoking, oil paintings by not only re-contextualizing the Japanese anime/manga/otaku subculture but proactively giving this subculture its “art direction” and “artistic vector” regarding evolutionary ero-guro-kawaii-movements, the goth-loli-fashion and the relating music and theatre/art performance industry. Since the 1990’s, Trevor Brown plays an important, central role in the Japanese art scene. (Later, Takashi Murakami 村上隆, Mr. ミスター and Yoshitomo Nara 奈良美智 “following/copying” part of his artistic practice/context, catapulted ‘fetishism fine art’ into the Japanese main stream culture.) Trevor’s existence and aura in the global subculture-related art world consequently can be called already: – “historical“.
(In this sense, I may hereby take the opportunity to say that I’m very proud of his Gesamtkunstwerk until today, – while being a colleague and a friend of him and his charming Japanese wife.)
Since the early stage of our careers, we live in the same beloved neighborhood in Tokyo’s Asagaya and nearby Nakano-Broadway. May I humbly mention, that we are continuing (or try to continue) to influence an important part of this nucleus of Japanese contemporary art + culture.
The exhibition, which I’m hereby partly introducing through the attached pics, still runs until the 5th of this month at the gallery Le Déco. Don’t tell me later, you missed Trevor Brown’s solo show! :-))
