  • About the artwork

    Tomoko Nagao 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.

Tomoko Nagao

Born in: 1976


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to the economic mechanisms of power in the production of images, where Renaissance patrons like Medici have now been replaced by the creative directors of major brands.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.
