The artistic journey of a renowned graphic designer and artist.

A pioneer of Japanese graphic design in the 1960s and 1970s, Tadanori Yokoo first became known through his posters and illustrations. A number of artists, including Issey Miyake and the writer Yukio Mishima, spotted his talent and requested his collaboration.

In the early 1980s, painting became the art form through which Tadanori uncompromisingly began to explore various subjects rooted in personal and collective memories, such as life, death, society, sex, and religion. Impervious to criticism, bent on giving inspiration full rein, he never shrank from shocking his contemporaries as he varied stylistic and thematic approaches. Published to accompany a French exhibition, the book includes recent paintings as well as older work. 100 color illustrations.
