Mr. recently launched his solo exhibition at Galerie Perrotin in Paris, France entitled “Mr.’s Melancholy Walk Around the Town.” The anticipated showcase features new original paintings by the celebrated Japanese artist. Drawing inspiration from his hometown of Tokyo, the artworks portray his signature anime-inspired motifs and vivid Ero-kawaii (“erotic cute” when translated in English) subjects clad in school uniforms.

“Mr.’s city, the city of Tokyo, the otaku neighborhoods of Akihabara and Ikebukuro, is for him such a site,” described the gallery in a statement. “An interminable cacophony of words and images. A seductive fantasy of desire and dread. A space of street scribblings and graffiti, of conspicuous consumption and exhaustion.”

Tour the exhibition above. “Mr.’s Melancholy Walk Around the Town” is open to the public at Galerie Perrotin Paris until March 9. Elsewhere in art, the buyer of Banksy’s Season Greetings mural has unveiled plans to build an art center where he will display the politically-charged piece.
