Description

"The visual wit and optical illusions of the master graphic artist and designer, Shigeo Fukuda, transcend cultures."

Shigeo Fukuda Masterworks is a compendium of the most famous work selected and arranged by the renowned graphic artist and designer himself. Sketches show the development of his concepts for each piece.

Born in Tokyo in 1932, Shigeo Fukuda graduated from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in 1956. His unique style and provocative images earned him a reputation as one of the finest and most exciting poster artists in the world today.

Fukuda's solo exhibitions include the New York IBM Art Gallery (1967), the San Francisco Asian Art Gallery (1987), the Camper Modern Art Museum, France (1991) and the Japan Foundation in Toronto (1999).
