Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

Remembering… Fukuda-san.

Tokyo, Japan

Four years ago today, our friend and colleague Shigeo Fukuda, the great graphic sensei, passed on into the next dimension. Japan’s consummate visual communicator, Fukuda-san is known around the world as a playful prankster, a modern-day Escher, and an imaginative creator who “dramatically shattered cultural and linguistic barriers with his universally recognizable style.”

Perhaps Alan Fletcher described him the best (in Masters of the 20th Century): “Shigeo Fukuda is a star in the design firmament—on second thought, maybe he’s more of a comet.” Fukuda-san—there’s no doubt that you’ll continue to light up our heaven…

Shown above a few samples of Fukuda-san’s engaging posters.

Paris, France

French painter Bernard Durin (1940-1988) became smitten with beetles in the summer of 1972 as he tramped the countryside in Provence. His artist’s eye aroused by the galaxies of insect life, he eventually found his necessary models at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, which gave him access to its trove of preserved insects… (read more and see more images here).
