Genkyo - A Visual Story - Tadanori Yokoo / ISBN 9784336071002 / 160 page hardcover, illustrated in color & bw, published by Kokushokankokai / Japanese with English captions
Tadanori Yokoo's 80-year history of creations that continue to fascinate the world is condensed into one book. Fans will recognise his playful and dazzling signature style, decade by decade: graphic works of the 1960s, techniques and themes released after his “painter declaration” in 1981, and the "Y-shaped road" series from the 2000s. This is the official catalogue of an exhibition that traces the development of Yokoo's art and episodes of his life. Born in 1936, the Japanese graphic designer, illustrator, printmaker, and painter has spent a lifetime merging art and design with often outrageous visual and cultural elements from within Japan and overseas.
