Revered in Japan as a leading figure of postwar art and progenitor of the Japanese Pop and Superflat movements, 86 year-old Keiichi Tanaami will unveil an optically dazzling suite of new large-scale paintings in his first exhibition with Venus Over Manhattan. Tanaami’s art is celebrated for its unbridled approach to form, intensity of color, and almost dizzying layers of canny cultural references ranging from ukiyo-e to Disney. This exhibition, the artist’s first in New York since 2016, will also present new animations alongside a dozen monumental canvases in a prelude to Tanaami’s forthcoming European museum survey in 2023/2024.
