The 133rd Exhibition Tadanori Yokoo's Poster Lucky God Yokoo June 5 - 27 ,1997

The approximately 30 posters in this Lucky Good Exhibition were made in three months. It was like a short distance runner taking on a marathon course. First of all, I have made posters with an entirely different attitude from the usually accepted one. I feel posters make the general public feel artless and blessed. In that sense, they are fundamentally connected to my paintings. This time, all the posters were made on request rather than as commissioned work. All were also silk screened. Getting back to the basics in making posters, I remembered when I had no work, ran about to get orders and always hung out in silk screening plants. Since I did not want to just make posters for this exhibition, that gave me satisfaction. From now on I'd like to make posters that will make clients happy according to my own rules.
