Biography / Kazuki Takamatsu

Kazuki Takamatsu was born in Sendai in 1978 and was part of the Japanese subculture during his youth. In 2001 he graduated from Tohoku University with a degree in painting. Takamatsu’s haunting black and white portraits tell stories about our modern society. His work can be found on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/14 in 2019.

Through his unique technique, Takamatsu combines classical approaches such as drawing, airbrush and gouache with computer graphics. In his paintings he artistically documents the feelings and emotions of the human being, thereby reflecting the state of our culture. With the dissolution of light and shadow, the artist negates the presence of good and evil, the renunciation of colors stands for the absence of discriminatory elements in his pictorial narratives.
