Nihon Buyo 


This is a poster for a traditional Japanese dance performance at the University of California. It is composed entirely of simple two-dimensional shapes of circles, triangles and squares, while a female figure with Japanese hair emerges from an inorganic geometric pattern formed by the addition of red circles and black semicircles in the center. The poster illustrates Ikko Tanaka's fusion of modernist sensibilities and traditional Japanese culture through simplified illustrations of geishas.
