  • About the artwork

    Known worldwide and jet icon for many advertising campaigns, "The Last Supper" by Leonardo da Vinci - oil fresco in the refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan - is here read back in a Pop and contemporary key by Tomoko Nagao.

    Tomoko studied the composition helped by Mario Taddei, one of the biggest Leonardo's works international experts (and curator of the exposition "Leonardo 3", internationally successful exhibition during which Leonardo's masterpieces were rebuilt in 3D using a very complicated software), choosing to maintain the original composition, faded colors and all the objects that already appeared in the fresco, such as the knife and the salt poured near Judah, who keeps a tablet opened on Google. The artpiece becomes a Vectorial Art in which Jesus and the Apostles eat a junk food dinner on a table laid with an Ikea cloth (which is signed by the artist) together with other well known pop icons, like Lady Gaga.

Tomoko Nagao

Born in: 1976

Japan

Translation in progress

Tomoko Nagao was born in 1976 in Nagoya, Japan and she is one of the main contemporary artists of Micropop art. She studied in japan assimilating Takashi Murakami's Superflat style and Nara Yoshitomo's style made of stylized shapes. In London she attended the Chelsea College of Art. She's considered the most important exponent of MicroPop Art in Italy. She practices the Superflat style, the postmodern Japanese art movement founded by Takashi Murakami. So her artworks are characterized by flat and emphatic images and defined outlines. Her production includes original paintings (Gioconda, Infanta Margherita with Coca-Cola and Kitty), stencils (Candy-Candy Blue MicroPop Superflat, Canestra di frutta Yellow MicroPop Superflat) and vectorial art (Botticelli - The Birth of Venus with Baci, The Great Wave of Kanagawa with MC, Cupnoodle, Kewpie, Kikkoman and Kitty). She usually reinterprets Renaissance masterpieces employing the Japanese aesthetic concept of "kawaii" that makes everything cool. Tomoko takes Caravaggio, Tiziano, La Tour, Velázquez, Botticelli, Hokusai's artworks and she revisits them, also introducing global brands like Coca-Cola, Barilla, Play Station PSP or iPad. Nagao's adaption 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to the economic mechanisms of power in the production of images, where Renaissance patrons like Medici have now been replaced by the creative directors of major brands. Today, Nagao lives and works in Milan.
