Sweet Capital show starts

Sweet Capital, a first solo exhibition in 2013

If Starbucks was around in the sixties, would Audrey Hepburn have grabbed a cup in Breakfast at Tiffany’s?

Sweet Capital is a new series of ballpoint pen drawings by Tomori Nagamoto, that incorporate iconic contemporary logos into renditions of recognizable photographs of Audrey Hepburn, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and other classic movie stars and musicians.

Tomori Nagamoto contributes to the practice of incorporating logos into art that has been trailblazed by superstars like Warhol and Banksy.  He adds to this practice with a series of whimsical alterations of history in a fluid drawing style, adding a dash of very recognizable ‘corporate’ colours.
