Tadanori Yokoo, ‘Having Reached a Climax athe the Age of 29, I Was Dead’, 1965, Omnibus Gallery

Yokoo is credited as the artist who introduced Pop Art to Japan. His earliest work were silkscreens - which result in an extreme saturation of color. Yokoo designed this poster for an exhibition entitled Persona at Tokyo's Matsuya department store in November, 1965. This image commented on the stifling nature of Japanese society on artists. It was shocking, sensational, and became an instant classic. It is extremely rare to find posters from Tadanori Yokoo's early career during which his printing runs were short and few were kept.

Signature: Hand signed and numbered 13 out of 50 by the artist in blue pen.
