FUKUDA Shigeo(1932-2009), who was born at Tokyo and spent his childhood at Ninohe City in Iwate Prefecture, started his carrier as graphic designer since the middle of the 1950s, when the Japanese scene of design was undergoing a great change on the way to Games of the XVIII Olympiad at Tokyo in 1964 and Japan World Exposition at Osaka in 1970. In 1972 he won the golden medal at the 4th International Poster Biennale, Warsaw, which gave him international fame.

 

Main focus of Fukuda’s creative spirit is centered upon the human sense of sight receiving information and the essence of wit. This spirit permeates into not only his graphic works but also his sculptures as trick art utilizing optical illusion.

 

This exhibition is the most comprehensive retrospective one ever held, which consists of 210 posters in the collection of the DNP Foundation for Cultural Promotion and about 100 plastic works in the collection of Fukuda Shigeo Design Museum in Ninohe City Civic Center, with valuable document such as sketches recording his formative ideas.
