Tomohiro Takahashi

Inspired by a stuffed animal he has treasured for many years, Tomohiro Takahashi is obsessed with toys that are shaped as living creatures but can not speak, therefore they have huge capacity to accept all without any judgements. The contrast between the bare canvas and the cut-and-paste style background functions as a stage set to cause a dissimilation effect, in order to spotlight the ideal world he creates in the painting.

 

Tomohiro Takahashi was born in 1996 and is currently enrolled in a master degree at Kyoto University of the Arts.

 

Takahashi's unique style formed by eye-catching motives and realistic details attracted many attentions among collectors and gallerists and the most of works got sold out due to the high popularity since at school.
