The ï¬rst monograph showcasing the visceral, exciting, and chaotic paintings of Mu Pan
Drawing inspiration from nature, Japanese Kaiju ï¬lms, samurai iconography, and mythology, Taiwanese-born and Brooklyn-based artist Mu Pan invites viewers to examine their own nature as they look upon the broken bodies and battleï¬elds that appear throughout his intricate, violent, vibrant, and often humorous paintings. Collected for the ï¬rst time in The Art of Mu Pan, are works that exemplify his recent output and that have made him a celebrated artist in Europe and the United States.
Incorporating cultural inï¬‚uence from his home country of Taiwan, as well as techniques inspired by Edo-era Japan and iconic images from pop culture, Mu Pan’s work is both timeless and hyper-modern.
