Nobumasa Takahashi "Classic Caricature"


poster for Nobumasa Takahashi "Classic Caricature"

This event has ended.

Each year, Nobumasa Takahashi holds "Classic Caricature" to present his achievements of the past year. The concept of his "Classic" series is three aspects of "funniness". Takahashi expresses "funniness for adults" by cutting out pictograms of the good old days.

The three aspects of "funniness" are:
1) 'Things that were done seriously in their time' that would be considered funny now.
2) Tracing and drawing reality (3D rendering) into pictograms (2D drawing) by forcibly confining the 3D image within lines. The relation of "real (3D)" vs "pictograms (2D)" has the "funniness" that uses paradox of drawings.
3) Since Takahashi is an Otaku (a person who stays at home and devotes him or himself to one hobby), he cannot be stylish. However, Takahashi tries to do smart and stylish things, like exhibiting in Aoyama's center of fashion, Cibone. This awkward situation is "funny", isn't it?
