This event has ended.
Koichiro Takagi has garnered attention for works which take anthropomorphized animals as their motif, using a variety of methods such as embroidery, painting, and stencil. Maki Gallery is pleased to present the artist’s first solo exhibition, “Infinite Light,” on the second floor of the gallery space in Omotesando (Tokyo).
Takagi’s recent works have become larger in scale and a deeper narrative quality has emerged. Viewing these works is almost like reading medieval liturgical texts. In fact, the artist was born into a Catholic family and attended a Catholic school. Influenced by his older brother, he became an avid fan of hardcore punk and familiarized himself with American street culture. The sacred and the profane coexist in the artist himself. This exhibition will present the artist’s works from the past to his newest pieces.
