Artist #41: Hideki Takahashi

Hideki Takahashi is an artist from Tokyo, Japan. His Structuralism style and work include paintings, installations, and also clothing...specifically denim jeans. Growing up in Japan, he learned about fashion and culture very early on. His work playfully explores how denim jeans, apparel, and fashion are perceived in contemporary mass culture by placing them in various contexts that illuminate the differences. As a Fashion Composer, as he calls himself, his work takes these differences and magnifies them, beyond the confines of definition and redefines them as, Restless Installations. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. (Written by Andrew David Baron) www.HidekiTakahashi.com / Twitter: @HidekiNomono
