Yasumasa Morimura

Olympia, (Manet)
Monroe (Warhol print)
"To my little sister, for Cindy sherman" (Cindy Sherman 96)

"Daughter of Art History: Theatre B"

I found out about this artist today in my H and C class. I like his parodies on contemporary artist photographs, however his versions include subtle changes to the originals with reference to his Chinese heritage. My particular favourite example would be his parody piece of Olympia by Manet, a cute Maneki Neko (Beckoning cat) that sits at the bottom of the nudes feet.
