Tadanori Yokoo – Legend


In this article, graphics legend Tadanori Yokoo does talk about his switch to art. It’s amazing however that despite is long career and influence in culture, that’s he’s not more widely regarded outside of Japan. Most of his well known pieces are his graphics works, which span decades. He’s done albums, movie posters and also fine art. He’s been doing fine art since 1981, and has a following for his works there too. Although the article is also featuring his current works, it still leans towards the posters and graphics which he is still most known. It’s great to see a person switch from being at a peak in a career to something that can be looked at so critically. (Japan Times – Tadanori Yokoo)
