Yasuo Kazuki, Iri and Toshi Maruki, and Kikuji Kawada




“Yasuo Kazuki, Iri and Toshi Maruki, and Kikuji Kawada”

This is an exhibition held to commemorate the 25th anniversary of The Hiratsuka Museum of Art. Yasuo Kazuki is a Western-style painter who produced “Siberia Series” based on his experience of being detained in Siberia. Iri and Toshi Maruki, as a couple, co-produced a series of gigantic Japanese-style paintings called “The Hiroshima Panels,” based on their experience of seeing Hiroshima after the atomic bomb was dropped. Kikuji Kawada released a collection of monochrome photographs called “Map,” which included photographs of deceased Kamikaze pilots and stains on the wall of the Atomic Bomb Dome. In this exhibition, you can see varied points of view towards the war through Western and Japanese-style paintings and photographs; three different artistic forms of expression. 

tegusu designed the main graphics for the exhibition, and used the design in various printed materials including the poster, leaflet, admission ticket and catalogue. Considering the serious nature of the exhibition content, we didn’t make the design too decorative. Instead, we created the design from which you can feel tension, using elements like Japanese letters in a delicate-looking font, the powerful presence of painting images, and the layout in which a margin is meaningfully used.
