Product Description

Tadanori Yokoo’s energetic, sizzling design for Swatch is at once calligraphic and contemporary.  Rorrim (GZ107) (mirror written backwards) references both traditional Japanese media (the special packaging includes a bamboo ink brush) and the characteristic condensation of urban, ad-like images that Yokoo reworks in his art. The bold, impulsive colours—red, black, goldenrod yellow, blue—are featured on the intensely kinetic, action-packed dial as well. In this powerful, elegant and reflective work, the artist has achieved a masterful balance of noise and silence, one the mirror image and complement of the other.

Artist Biography

Tadanori Yokoo

Tadanori Yokoo is a Japanese graphic designer, illustrator, printmaker and painter known for his enormous versatility. A prolific and unpredictable artist, he has produced animation, book designs, prints, posters, album covers, illustration and paintings. He is also known for referencing the visual over-saturation of cities such as Tokyo, which are inundated with images and information.  His multi-faceted and surreal designs can be described as portraits of the visually disorganized, complicated present. In his later work he often mixes elements from different media.
