|Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin is pleased to present a new solo exhibition of Japanese artist Mr. !
His neo-pop aesthetics spans across painting, sculpture, installation and video. Associated with the superflat movement, he uses manga and anime to portray his own personal fantasies. His cartoonish visions are essentially inhabited by young girls, in a typical ero kawaii style, blending sometimes childlike features (round faces, wide eyes, colorful hair) with innocent erotic undertones (panty-revealing skirts). Contrasting with the bright cheerfulness of his all-powerful female characters, a wider reflection upon solitude, social anxiety, impotence and fear further underlies his work.
