He was 9 years old when Tokyo was bombed during the Great Tokyo Air Raid of World War II in 1945. Keiichi Tanaami graduated from Musashino Art University. Since the 1960s, Tanaami has been associated with the pop-art movement, and the influence of artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein is clear. In his own work from the 60s and 70s collage played a big part (and still does) as Tanaami would juxtapose clippings from American comics and girlie magazines with his own drawn images of women in sexual poses. He has pursued an active career as a graphic designer, a film maker and an artist, successfully transcending the boundaries between the three, to become a trailblazing representation of a modern, versatile artist, who exerts a considerable influence on artists around the world Tanaami’s inspirations come from science fiction ,manga characters and his childhood memories of the war. These inspirations areTanaami’s affinity to pop-art, and his natural tendency to use his works to turn his memories into something positive. since 1991,Tanaami is working as a professor at Kyoto University of Art and Design, where he has helped bring up young new artists.
