- Yasumasa Morimura - "Widely known as the artist who transforms himself into the Mona Lisa and movie actresses. Since 1985, his focus has been his 'self-portrait series', consisting of unique reconstructions of art masterpieces in which the subject's face is substituted with that of Morimura himself. Through careful study and analysis of the themes, artists, and historical background of these works, Morimura searches out their raison d'etre and transforms them according to his own interpretations. His ability to deconstruct, subvert and simultaneously create homage is what enables his work to continually defy categorization."
