Following a provocative teaser promoting his first solo show titled “Visual Rape,” graffiti artist Kidult opened the exhibition for a mere 48 hours over the weekend in Tokyo. On display was a miniature replica of the Paris Chanel store he famously tagged back in 2013, a wall of posters featuring Donald Trump sporting a Supreme tee a la Morrissey, as well as other pieces of artwork eschewing government corruption and consumerism.

Take a look at the images above and let us know what you think about Kidult’s first show in the comments below.
