This event has ended.

After three months of traveling across Europe in his 20s, Takeshi Honda decided to settle in the town of Tono, Iwate Prefecture and become a landscape artist. He began producing works in his “Walking in the Mountains” series in the 1990s. He is known to spend more than ten hours at a time walking through the mountains of Tono, and stresses that this wandering is closely tied to his artistic process. The light he encounters during these walks has become a subject of his incredibly elaborate works, which sometimes measure nearly eight meters in length. Drawings of the hollows of large trees, rendered with Honda’s signature cosmic outlook, and works from a new series featuring the moon are on display.
