‘Psychedelic Death Pop’ is a sprawling, large-format collection of recent visual work by Keiichi Tanaami. As one of the leading pop artists of post-war Japan, he has remained active as multi-genre artist since the 1960s, with works spanning graphic design, illustration, video, and fine art. Psychedelia-inspired styles and comic book elements feature heavily in Tanaami’s artworks, with faces, bizarre deformities, surreal animals, and human skulls appearing as common themes. As an added bonus, the publication also includes two large stickers designed by the artist.
