I first became aware of artist Yoshiitomo Nara (The Lonesome Puppy, Oh! My God! I Miss You) with his CD cover Shonen Knife CD Happy Hour. From there, it seemed any book on contemporary Japanese art, from Plastic Culture to Warriors of Art contained a reference to the popular Pop Artist. Thus I was excited to see this documentary, "Traveling with Yoshiitomo Nara," and hopefully to gain a little more insight into an artist whose work I admire.

The first in a series of documentaries by Viz Pictures covering contemporary Japanese artists, "Traveling with Yoshiitomo Nara" is exactly what the title says it is. Rather than being a documentary on the artist and his works, it is more like a camera being allowed to tag along as Yoshiitomo leaves Japan for overseas exhibitions in places like Korea, Thailand and the United States.

The trips are a challenge for Yoshiitomo, who is an introverted and shy individual uncomfortable with being treated like a pop star celebrity. He is confronted with women calling him "handsome" and asking him why he isn't married, and heavily pierced New York hipsters trying to make an impression when all Yoshiitomo wants to do is crawl into a small, comfortable space where he can live in his head.

Bought this as a gift for my sister-in-law. She loves it & couldn't be happier. There's not much to say when buying a DVD other than it works & it arrived undamaged! No need to buy again, but will buy further editions should they come out with one

I ordered this title as soon as I became aware of it through a link on "Giant Robot" website. Yoshitomo Nara is one of my favorite artists.
I loved this journey shown in this film. It was so enigmatic and provides a fascinating window into the artist's creative process and artistic journey.
