Paul McCarthy is a master of producing captivating, yet satirical and often grotesque performance-installations.
He realised this project, Tokyo Santa, in 1996, when it was first shown at the Tokyo Gallery Tomeo Koyama.
Here, Santa Claus acts with a camera and a knife, with colour and paper. We see paintings, print and satire on the paradigm of society.
This book is brilliantly illustrated throughout and includes text by the artist.
