Japanese graphic designer, illustrator, printmaker, and painter Tadanori Yokoo achieved international recognition for his work during the 1960s. His great interest in psychedelia, mysticism, and the pop culture of the time led him to produce brightly colored, intensely autobiographical works using complex, multi-layered imagery, but also posters for events by leading figures of the counterculture movement in Japan, like Tatsumi Hijikata, Juro Kara, and Shuji Terayama, that reflect a keen painterly expression. A retrospective look at Yokoo’s vibrant oeuvre, this book features more than 250 works, including prints, posters, and paintings, from the late 1960s up to 1990.
