  1. Onda POP after Hokusai - The Great Wave of Kanagawa

    Onda POP after Hokusai - The Great Wave of Kanagawa

    Artist: Tomoko Nagao

    Width: 100 cm

    Height: 70 cm

    Tomoko Nagao creates her first version of the "great wave" in 2012 as a reflection and a reaction to the shock caused by the Tsunami of 2011 in the north of Japan, after the nuclear tragedy of Fukushima. Everything is based on consumer society, on meanings and short-lived aims attributed to futile illusions of wealth thanks to mass consume. The great wave wipes out lots of mass products but it doesn't act in a destructive way because the artist knows that everything is going to regenerate one day.

    With the occasion of the exhibition-special event at Mondadori Tomoko laughs at the meaning of contemporary art and international pop art using the typical language of the japanese art, with a soft "kawaii" key; a short circuit is generated between art and marketing, with a 2.0  viral web communication where the boundaries between art and advertisement are thin.

  2. Napoleone conquers Tokyo

    Napoleone conquers Tokyo

    Artist: Tomoko Nagao

    Width: 100 cm

    Height: 70 cm

    "Napoleone Conquers Tokyo - Napoleon Bonaparte with Godzilla, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Michelin, Danone, Emirates, Kitty, Barilla, PSP, the Louvre, Fukushima, Shibuya, Tokyo Tower, Mt Fuji and Google", recent work of the extraordinary Street Pop artist, Tomoko Nagao.

    Nowadays Godzilla's bridles are Louis Vuitton, with Napoleon conquering Tokyo. From the artwork by Jacques-Louis David "Napoleon at the Saint-Bernard Pass" or "Napoleon crossing the Alps", 1801.

    Taken from an artwork which demonstrates e declares all the admiration of David for Napoleon, for Tomoko the admiration is for french brands which have enchanted whole generations of Japanese people, girls above all, who aim to have a LV bag as a priority. A Fukushima nuclear reactor is also represented, as a warning of a disaster coming, considering the great amount of nuclear energy produced by France.

    There's also the famous "Tokyo Tower", symbol of the megalopolis evidently copied by the Tour Eiffel.

    An impossible scene because Napoleon would never travel to Tokyo but made actual thanks to the commercial conquering of Japan by french brands. So Napoleon finds himself in Shibuya, new place for worldwide tourism and pulsing center of the most consumerism Tokyo instead of the Alps.

    The white horse of Napoleon is Godzilla, character taken from the first Seventies version in a perfect "Tokusatsu" style (animated puppets sometimes by an actor) which were the main characters of the great TV shows with Japanese monsters before the anime.

    "Il Quarto Stato after Pellizza with Motta, Campari, Pirelli, Armani, Prada, Chicco, Alitalia an Visa at Piazza Duomo", recent work of the extraordinary Street Pop artist, Tomoko Nagao.

    Pop-people are going forward inexorably holding a Campari magnum bottle. The working class wears Armani (fake or original), with lots of typical brands of Milan like the "panetùn" Panettone Motta.
    Behind this crowd of proudly consumerism people the Duomo of Milan in a Pop Gothic version, read back with a detailed work of forms and vectors which build even the sculptures of the Guglie with characters coming from Tomoko's artworks.

  4. Gabrielle and her Sister after Fontainebleau

    Gabrielle and her Sister after Fontainebleau

    Artist: Tomoko Nagao

    Width: 100 cm

    Height: 70 cm

    The painting Tomoko pays her attention to depicts Gabrielle d'Estréès and her presumed sister - who's probably the brunette Duchess of Villars - noble women, in an erotic behavior which is enough weird for that time, in an artwork located in the second part of the artistic movement it belongs to - begun in the France of the Sixteenth century thanks to Francesco I and called Fontainebleau School.

    New-Patronage is nowadays characterized by brands and mass marketing - french brands but also worldwide famous others.

    The desire of the King who sponsored the movement was to create in the court a cultural environment in a refined atmosphere - which could recreate the golden age of Renaissance - while today in Tomoko's work the aim is to reach a seriality and make art affordable for everyone, with a critic to the decline of valors and customs in the Occidental world above all.

    Luxury marketing is the protagonist and it suddenly emerges: this is a market which knows no crisis but which also lives together with mass consumption products were the new King is allegorically speaking, consumption which plains everything.

    In this Pop Icon of Occidental art history - exposed at second floor in the Louvre Museum in Paris - the two sisters (or the presumed because we don't have any official document which can confirm this) are submerged in a sort of bathtub. The "pinch" on Gabrielle's nipple, notoriously the official lover (but not the only one) of King Henry IV: according to the critics he was married to a sterile Margherita and couldn't give a heir to himself and to the nation. He could have the much younger Gabrielle, so the act of the sister of touching her breast, symbol of maternity, could also has this meaning: soon the young woman will be a mother and generate the heir to the throne which, in the work by Tomoko, is represented by a hypothetical nurse in the background who is dressing the future heir with Petit Bateau, the famous french brand for kids while having an engagement ring (which would obviously be a Tiffany today) means the role of Gabrielle as a substitute of queen Margherita. The recall to the "noble dowry" goes today to a "Visa Oro" credit card, with Tomoko's Salomè iconic head.

    In the detailed vectorial work by Tomoko the historical theme is put aside to better show up the idea many people would have: two women who are in love and flirting with a "pinching" act which could also mean a homosexual love or seduction. This thing is valorized by the fact that official critic doesn't give confirmation of the two figures being sisters but above all the choice of the painter of the original piece to remain anonymous because he may have revealed some secrets or told something unspeakable for that time.

  5. The Birth of Venus

    The Birth of Venus

    Artist: Tomoko Nagao

    Width: 100

    Height: 70

    "The Birth of Venus with Baci" is one of the most remarkable Vectorial Art pieces by Tomoko Nagao. A Sony PSP consolle takes the place of the original shell and a Venus with green hair emerges. The roles and the positione of the original iconogrphy are maintained and so we see, next to the goddess, Zephyr and the nymph Chlori embracing Hello Kitty on one side, the maid Ora on the other side, who is helping Venus getting dressed with a package of Shiseido cream. The characters float in a light and lovely way upon a sea made of Baci Perugina, packs of spaghetti Barilla and yellow Esselunga shpopping bags while some easyJet planes fly on the background. The japanese artist wants to represent our society in a critical but funny way.
    The artpiece has just been published in the magazine "La Freccia" (June 2016) in the article "Botticelli Reimagined"

    The Birth of Venus

    Artist: Tomoko Nagao

    Width: 70 cm

    Height: 50 cm

    The emphatic flatness of the image and its clearly defined outlines, derived from the visual language of the postmodern Japanese art movement Superflat, here seem like an extreme version of the style of the Old Renaissance master, which worked on similar principles. This affinity is unintentionally reminiscent of the way in which Japanese art of the Edo period was perceived in Europe during the second half of the nineteenth century, around the same time as Botticelli was rediscovered. Superflat routinely employs the aesthetic concept of 'kawaii', known in Europe primarily through Japanese animated films, using it to comment on Japanese consumer culture. Nagao's adaptations of Old Master paintings are intended as an ironic reference to the economic mechanisms of power in the production of images, where Renaissance patrons like the Medici have now been replaced by the creative directors of major brands.

    Artist: Tomoko Nagao

    Art can't be indifferent to tragedies happening everyday all over the world: so does Tomoko Nagao, who realises this artpiece after the Paris terroristic attacks of the 13th November 2015, using as always her unmistakable kawaii print (also visible because of the several unchis, japanese symbol for poo). This time she choses Delacroix's "news painting", in his famous work "Liberty Leading the People", which becomes "Liberty Leading the POP". In a scenery filled with Louis Vuitton bags, Chanel n 5, Danone and other famous french labels, in the centre Cinderella with a Chanel shoe brings the Google flag. Behind her Snowhite and the Seven Dwarfs, Mickey Mouse and Minnie (symbol of the alliance with USA), take the place of the original. In the background the Louvre Pyramid, the Castle of Disneyland and a nuclear power plant.
    Freedom is a "Cinderella" among french brands, protagonists of globalisation brought by revolution.
