WHAT’S ON: Keiichi Tanaami: Works on Paper, September 2 - October 4, 2014. Sikkema Jenkins, 530 W 22nd St, New York, NY.
From Sikkema Jenkins:
Known for his broad artistic talents, the current exhibition includes drawings, prints, video animations, and recently rediscovered collages, focusing on work produced from the late 1960’s to early 1970’s. Influenced by a trip to New York City in 1967 and encounters with work by Andy Warhol, the pieces brim with American iconography and consumerism – stars and stripes, Coke-Cola, Hollywood stars, cartoon and comic book characters. An interest in the erotic excess of American culture during that period is also evident, later leading Tanaami to become the first artistic director of Japanese Playboy.
