Design: Ryoichi ENOMOTO + Emi HIRUTA

  Enomoto’s world is jam-packed with gems, including a wide array of work that had enormous influence on the Japanese cultural scene in the 1970s and 80s, such as dynamic calligraphy and large paintings inspired by Tatsuhiko Shibusawa’s swan song, The Travels of Prince Takaoka, Bikkuri House, a legendary sub-culture magazine that pioneered the open participation approach, and Nihon Guraffiku-ten, an exhibition of graphic art that aimed to shatter established ideas and discover new creative talent. Enomoto’s graphic design activities include work with Shuji Terayama and the Tenjo Sajiki theater troupe and dance posters for Saburo Teshigawara. Not to be forgotten is Nogyo shugi: Enomoto Ryoichi no aidia noto (Manual skills for brain work: conceptual notes by Ryoichi Enomoto), which contains a vast volume of notes providing a glimpse into Enomoto’s mind.
