We recently saw this short documentary on one of our favorite Japanese artists, Aya Takano.  She discusses her early influences including her childhood readings, the encouragement of Takashi Murakami, Yayoi Kusama, and the um… orgasm of science fiction.  She also discusses the different reactions to her work, often depicting playful and subtly erotic young girls.
