Paco Rabanne x Kimura

An escapist, an avant-gardist, a surrealist: Kimura Tsunehisa (1928-2008) proposed astonishing scenes that could be alternately utopic and apocalyptic. From mystic, imagined worlds to sci-fi cityscapes, graphic posters to dizzying magazine covers, the visionary artist – little known outside his native Japan – created a body of work that reveals his deep and fantastical contemplation of our environments. Decades before digital technology, his photo collages expressed the same impulse towards radical craft explored by Paco Rabanne.

Revived and newly relevant, Kimura’s art emerges as a visual message from his past to our future.
