PhotobucketLast week I reviewed the second installment of the New People Artist Series, Yayoi Kasuma: I Love Me. The people over at NPAS were nice enough to hook us up with three gift packs that include stickers, buttons, and a copy of their first release to the series, Traveling with Yoshitomo Nara.

Directed by KojiSakabe, Traveling with Yoshitomo Nara follows Nara as he travels while opening his largest installation to date, (possibly ever) AtoZ. Much like Yayoi Kasma, I was very familiar with Nara’s practice but not with the artist himself. As we follow him to fan club meetings where woman shower him with affection (many times leaving the artist speechless) to his studio where he creates his distinctive portraits of young girls, we get an insight in the world that Nara both lives and creates in.

If you would like to win one of the three copies please email me at Megonli@gmail.com with the header New People Artist Series. The first three contestants will receive a gift pack.

To purchase a copy of Traveling with Yoshitomo Nara or for more info on New People Artist Series please visit their site.
