Tokyo Gallery + BTAP packs out with young fans of Donwood's work.

Director Hozu Yamamoto steps out of the gallery for a moment's rest.Donwood's work is characterized by an atmosphere of phobia, unease and apocalypse.

Despite Radiohead's fame, Donwood has generally kept a low profile — so much so that some people have questioned whether he really exists or not, and if it isn't Thom Yorke making all the work.
