About the publication

A major avant-garde figure in graphic design in the 1960s and 1970s, Tadanori Yokoo started his career in advertising and illustration and rapidly garnered international recognition. Playing on styles from different eras, he has developed a singular language that adopts graphic elements from classic Japanese culture and Western references alike.
Published in 2006 for the Tadanori Yokoo exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, this catalog is a window onto the extraordinary world of his painting, still relatively unknown today. In it we discover highly diverse imagery of combination and accumulation, based on repetition and borrowing.
