This is an original artwork by Taro Okamoto consisting of a silkscreen print with embossed calligraphy on Bresdin Japon Paper, which forms the kanji 【夢】, Dream in English.

Here is a rare artwork from one of Japan's most prominent and famous artists. It is a great gift for calligraphy fans or Japanese art lovers.

Tarō Okamoto (岡本太郎Okamoto Tarō ); ( 26 February of 1911- 7 January of 1996 ) was a Japanese artist known for his abstract and avant-garde paintings and sculptures. He studied at the University of the Sorbonne, today Panthéon-Sorbonne in the 1930s, and did many works after the Second World War.

He was a prolific writer and artist until his death, exerting a strong influence on Japanese society. He was very interested in the mystery and the occult during his stay in Paris, where he remained for a decade.

He studied ethnology with Professor Marcel Mauss (1872-1950) at the university, focusing on the tribes of the Oceania area. Okamoto was also at the Collège de Sociologie Sacré de Georges Bataille (1897-1962) and participated in some rites carried out in the Saint-Germain forest on the outskirts of Paris, as a member of Accephale , a secret society of a spiritual nature.

Among the artists with whom he was associated at that time in Paris were André Breton (1896-1966), a leading figure of surrealism, fond of occultism, Kurt Seligmann (1900-1962), an artist who had contact with Ippei and Kanoko Okamoto, Tarō's parents.

In 1964, Tarō Okamoto published a book titled "Shinpi Nihon" (Mysteries of Japan). His interest in Japanese mysteries came from observing Jōmon objects at the Tokyo National Museum.

As a result, Okamoto traveled the country searching for what he saw as the mysterious underlying Japanese culture, and later published "Nihon Sai-hakken - Geijutsu Fudoki" (Rediscovering the Art of Topography of Japan). One of his most famous works, the Tower of the Sun , became the symbol of Expo '70 in Suita, Osaka , 1970. It shows the past (lower part), the present (middle part), and the future (the face) of the human race. Stay in the Expo Memorial Park Center.

In the 1970s, the businessman Manuel Suárez y Suárez invited the artist to decorate what would become the lobby of the Hotel de México. Taro Okamoto would paint his mural Asu no Shinwa ( Myth of Tomorrow ) that shows the horrors of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. This work was compared with Guernica of Picasso. The hotel was never built and the mural was lost, until it was found by chance in 2008 in a rubbish tip in Mexico City. It was restored and is currently located in the Tokyo subway station in Shibuya. Artists such as Akashi Murakami participated in its reconstruction.

The city of Kawasaki, his birthplace, built a museum about him in Tama-ku , northwest of the city.
