Taku Anekawa "Secret Allegory"

This event has ended.

For this exhibition, Anekawa took on a new challenge, and has chosen a combination of drawing and embroidery as his mode of expression. Entitled "Secret Allegory," this exhibition is a challenging new series of secret tales interwoven with threads of bizarreness and comicality, Anekawa’s favorite subjects.
After graduating from Kobe Design University graduate school in 1995, Anekawa worked mainly in the media creation fields of animation and digital content creation. Since 2002, he has pursued his original brand of embroidery.
A distinct feature of his creativity is a certain natural eccentricity, which was spotlighted in the “Nazo No Yasai Seijin Arawaru (The Appearance of the Mysterious Vegetable Aliens)”, a hit in the children’s TV program, “Ponkickies”, in 1999. When viewing Anekawa’s work, we often find them scary, but also comical in some way. It has a fine balance of calculated mischievousness and naturally-formed fetishism. They seem to brush the viewer’s deep psyche for the briefest of moments, and then run off again.
