  • When Art Deco was introduced to the world at the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris in 1925, this new style flourished in Japan in book design and illustration, applied arts and pattern designs. Illustrative material and art magazines brought back by Japanese artists studying in the West provided inspiration. In Japan, Art Deco took on another dimension, and the old designs seen in traditional crafts were fused with contemporary Western designs.
  • Advertising posters in Modernist style also blanketed the streets in Paris in a cultural-artistic phenomenon. French business and industry were the first to use Modernism in Europe in their publicity campaigns.
  • Graphic design was a new artistic discipline and was instrumental in spreading the Art Deco and Cubist style as seen in this Statendam Holland-America Line poster by A. M. Cassandre from 1928, created with airbrushing.
  • This haori, while not airbrushed, incorporates the style, giving dimension to an otherwise flat surface.
