Tadanori Yokoo
He was born in 1936 in Nishiwaki in Hyogo Prefecture. In the 1950s he began working as a graphic designer. In the middle of the 60s he created his own original style, a blend of Japanese ethnicity and Kitsch. In the 70s his works took a new direction, reflecting his interest in the spiritual world. Since 1981, he has mainly worked as a painter and has energetically produced his works while designing posters.
