This painting was featured in the “Krampus and Christmas” show at the Copro Nason Gallery a while back. There were a lot of really great paintings at the show, this being one of my favorites.
The seller stated that Naoto pieces are usually all sold out. Now many times sellers say this and it isn’t true, especially about prints. But in this case it is true, I can’t think of many times I see his work sold by the original buyers.
Naoto has a crazy style, his work is always a blast to look at and never gets old.
