Taro Okamoto: 100 years since his birth

Taro Okamoto: 100 years since his birth

Time Out says

100 years on, the Okamoto legend is as popular as it ever was. A controversial figure given to pop art statements ('Art is explosion!'), his chaotic creations earned him a reputation as 'the Japanese Picasso' (very few major Japanese artists manage to avoid this condescension), and his devil-may-care attitude has been much admired by would-be rebels ever since. This exhibition features 130 of his pieces, including paintings, designs, sculptures and photography. A must for lovers of Japanese modern art.
