The 121st Exhibition Shigeo Katsuoka's Typographic Art Departure June 5-28 ,1996

The passionate message to artists that became amplified in my own creative activities took shape in the collection of 35 years of graphic design, the works in this exhibition. Taking care to capture in the foundation on which the works are based the "work done by hand" quality, that hasn't been excluded by modern technology, I discovered the catalyst for the 2 sides of art and typography and tried to implant them visually. The theme of the works is a song of praise to highly esteemed artists. While I was creating them, a stifling tension wafted over each day as I was overwhelmed by the aesthetics, originality and dignity of the artists works. I am rather proud of works stemming from the innovative, new way of understanding, a result of the fusion of art and typography, and their significance. That has been substantiated in New York, Paris and Sofia.
