Tadanori Yokoo’s bold use of collage, psychedelia and appropriation of popular cultural icons — both Japanese and Western — created a new visual language for the turbulent, youth-charged 1960’s. As a focal point of the Japanese avant-garde, Yokoo’s work helped define post war Japan as an international cultural force.
