Beautiful poster by Tadanori Yokoo for the Advertising Museum exhibition in 1984.
Tadanori Yokoo was a renowned graphic designer whose posters and album covers for the Beatles, Miles Davis, Carlos Santana and other musicians had a profound influence on global pop culture. His psychedelic posters combined traditional Japanese motifs with elements of pop art, surrealism and American graphic arts, and anticipated the San Francisco posters of the 1960s. Yokoo's work was featured alongside artists such as Frank Stella and Andy Warhol in MoMA's "Word and Image" exhibition in 1968. Known for transgressing visual taboos, Yokoo used symbols of Japanese imperialism - the rising sun, Mount Fuji, high-speed trains - to ironic effect, often combining them with vulgar imagery. His graphic style is inspired by Japanese ukiyo-e prints and collage. A trip to India reinforced his interest in mysticism, which led him to use Buddhist imagery.
