Style Icons: Male »Tadanori Yokoo

tanadori yokooEven though graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo's work is a reflection of its time, the bold images and collages feel very exciting and fresh and seem to have inspired legions of artists since. I was recently drawn to some of his hyper color posters at the MoMA and subsequently stumbled across this wild collection on Pink Tentacle of his music and film posters including an explosive rainbow Emerson Lake and Palmer one and three spectacularly wild ones for the movie The Trip. Here are a few of my favorites over at Rotating Corpse.

His name also results in some fantastic video animations called “Kachi Kachi Yama” made in 1965 which is also the name of a Japanese folktale about a conniving rabbit that makes a farmer eat his dead wife (seriously, read the Wikipedia entry). This is one of the most visually compelling things you'll see on youtube, so do enjoy.
