TANAAMI!! AKATSUKA!! / That’s All Right!! (Limited 999 copies)
Fujio Akatsuka (Osomatsu-kun, Tensai Bakabon) was one of the most monumental men in merry manga and delighted readers for decades. Keiichi Tanami is Japan’s eminent post-war pop artists, combining psychedelic imagery with comic strip characters and sexually charged art. "TANAAMI!! AKATSUKA!! That‘s All Right!!" commemorates a special collaborative exhibition of the two artists held at Tokyo’s PARCO MUSEUM (Jan. 21- Feb. 13, 2023.) This catalog involves an experimental method called "live printing" performed by pouring ink directly into an offset printing press, that makes slight differences between each copy. The result is a journey through Post-War Japan’s art and manga history.
