The beautiful, eccentric, and talented multimedia artist Nagi Noda has died. Back in 2004 I blogged about video Noda did in which she dressed up like a poodle-person and did aerobics with a chorus line of bipedal poodle people. Her work was weird and wonderful and graceful like that. Lisa Katayama says:
Nagi Noda, talented, internationally famous artist and director who put her own unique artsy-girly high fashion sense on the international art scene map, died on Sunday.
Noda was born in Tokyo in 1973. She went to some really good art schools in the city before establishing her own studio, Uchu Country, in 2003. Since then, she went on to create ads for Nike and Coca-cola, album covers and music videos for artists ranging from Hikaru Utada to the Scissor Sisters, and a whole bunch of creative cool shit like the artsy poodle exercise video I posted a few months ago. In the US, she was represented by Partizan Entertainment and well-known in the NY art scene for being super-fun to hang out with. One of her newest now-posthumous creations is the upcoming album cover for Japanese singer MEG, which comes out on 9/17.
Nagi Noda, super-talented Japanese pop artist, is dead (Tokyomango; thank you Susannah Breslin).
Update: there are some truly amazing comments over at antville, the one about the napkin drawing is really beautiful.
