Mad Love is a new series of illustrations by Chris Yee which was created especially for The Japan Foundation, Sydney Contemporary Art Mini Series. This exhibition also marks the artist’s third solo show in Sydney.

Enter the world of Chris Yee’s Mad Love where he explores the intersection of Sydney suburban youth and Japanese pop culture influences. Growing up saturated by mass media, Yee depicts characters with a playful and obsessive outlook of heroes, idols and friendships as dictated by the outside world. Drawn in calligraphy ink and inspired by manga, the illustrations feature Yee’s signature linework and a minimalist colour palette.

About the Contemporary Art Mini Series

The contemporary art mini series of exhibitions by The Japan Foundation Gallery showcases contemporary works by both Japanese and Australian artists. The series will feature three different Sydney-based artists who work across various media: Chris Yee (illustrator), Haruyo Morita (painter), and Jennie Feyen (video artist). Their body of work is influenced by Japanese tradition with a modern interpretation, showcasing the collaboration between Japanese and Australian art and culture.
