Paul Smith Clothing x Keiichi Tanaami“Paul Smith is delighted to be hosting an exhibition of the work of celebrated Japanese artist Keiichi Tanaami. Born in 1936, Tanaami’s creative work in painting, illustration and graphic design first came to the fore in the 1960s when his vibrant, colourful and psychedelic designs adorned publications as esteemed as ‘Studio Voice’ and ‘Oz’. Tanaami’s work has since been the subject of a host of exhibitions around the world.

Tanaami’s distinct style – including trademark motif’s of goldfish, pine trees and waves – is highly respected by young contemporary artists in Japan and as a result Tanaami has worked consistently since the 1960s.

Paul Smith will be exhibiting sixteen of Tanaami’s hand silk-screened prints at his Mayfair shop. Entitled ‘Kamon’, this new set of work is inspired by family crests and epitomizes Tanaami’s high-colour, ‘Pop Art’ style.”
