Mu Pan


Drawing inspiration from nature, Japanese Kaiju films, 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 battlefields that appear throughout his intricate, violent, vibrant, and often humorous paintings. Collected for the first 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 influence 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.
