KENTA TAKAHASHI 高橋健太


1996   
Born in Aichi, Japan
Lives and works in Chiba, Japan


Kenta Takahashi (b.1996 in Aichi, Japan) completed new works from his signature "diamond steel plate” series. Takahashi recreates ubiquitous urban scenes with traditional painting materials of mineral pigment, silver leaf and washi paper. They defy expectation and present new approaches to concepts of abstraction and figurative, East and West, craftsmanship and industrialism.
