Born in 1936, Japanese artist Keiichi Tanaami was a pioneer of Pop Art in post-war Japan. His career began in graphic design — in the ’60s, he worked with rock band The Monkees and was the first art director of Japanese PlayBoy — and transitioned to experimental film, illustration, painting and sculpture. The multi-disciplinary artist currently has an exhibition of new paintings on view at Mizuma Gallery in Singapore titled “Birth Death Bridge.” On view through September 29, the exhibition takes its title from Tanaami’s near-death experience when he fell extremely ill at the age of 45. The experience prompted Tanaami to explore the metaphor of the bridge as a transition from this life to the next. Take a look at some of the work in the show on our site. Http://www.hifructose.com
