Transcript of Copy of Yasumasa Morimura

Yasumasa Morimura is a Japanese appropriation artist. He was born in Osaka and graduated from Kyoto City University of Arts in 1978. Since 1985, Yasumasa Morimura has primarily shown his work in international solo exhibitions, although he has been involved in various group exhibitions. Life Through his art work, Morimura becomes
someone else. He not only does digital photography, but spends a lot of his process re
creating an environment with different makeup, costumes and props. In his most recent and most extravagant reproduction, Morimura created a series of hybrid self-portraits modeled after the art of Frida Kahlo. Yasumasa Morimura has taken the figure of Marilyn Monroe and inserted his face into it. She is wearing a black and white dress and has blond hair and a beauty mark. The only difference is the face. Art Criticism: Desciption Step 2: Analyze In this photo the elements that are used are: line, value, contrast, and texture. The principles used are: balance. Morimura expresses
himself through recreating
iconic images and intrigues
people by stirring up
controversy. Step 3: Interpret Step 4: Judgement We think that this piece of artwork is very interesting and slightly strange. Morimura most definitely gets his message across by crossing controversial artistic boundaries. Self-Portrait - After Marilyn Monroe
