News__ Keiichi Tanaami: Hop, Step, Jump
If you thought skeletons couldn’t be sexy, think again
Tokyo born artist, Keiichi Tanaami’s new book, Hop, Step, Jump features blindingly colorful illustrations of skeletons in sexy positions, comic book-style heroes with blank expressions and strange child-like creatures drooling. Using a little dark humor, the surrealist collection of drawings are creepy but still a little fun.
Tanaami is one of the leading pop artists of post-war Japan. He became interested in cartoon-style drawing in the mid 1940’s as a way to escape the Second World War. Tanaami works in animation, sculpture, painting, film and is a professor of Information Design at Kyoto University of Art and Design.
