Tokyo 2020 Official Art Posters Project

The Olympic and Paralympic Games are as much a cultural event as they are a sporting one.

For the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Tokyo organising committee wanted to celebrate the flourishing of creativity around the quadrennial. They commissioned nineteen visual artists from a range of genres, from painting to manga and photography, based both in Japan and across the world, to contribute posters.

On display here are editions by British Turner Prizewinning painter Chris Ofili and Japanese graphic designer Taku Satoh, who has re-created the motif of the traditional Olympic symbol.

Designed by Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee.
