Text includes “The Museum of Modern Art, New York, January 24–March 10. Designer Tadanori Yokoo. Copyright 1968. Poster Originals Ltd, no. 69.”

Japanese graphic designer, illustrator, printmaker and painter Tadanori Yokoo “began his career as a stage designer for avant garde theatre in Tokyo. In the late 1960s he became interested in mysticism and psychedelia, deepened by travels in India. Because his work was so attuned to 1960s pop culture, he has often been (unfairly) described as the ‘Japanese Andy Warhol’ or likened to psychedelic poster artist Peter Max, but Yokoo’s complex and multi-layered imagery is intensely autobiographical and entirely original. By the late 60s he had achieved international recognition for his work and was included in the 1968 “Word & Image” exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Four years later MoMA mounted a solo exhibition of his graphic work.” Ref: Wiki; MoMA, NY.
