Artist Hideki Takahashi draws from his past experience in architecture to develop large-scale installations and paintings. A native of Tokyo, Japan, Takahashi was inspired by the city’s vibrant fashion scene and ultimately decided to use denim as the central medium in his work. Using 180-foot-long rolls of vintage Japanese denim, Takahashi graces his canvas with freehand strokes to create remarkable illustrations that pay homage to the spirited style culture that first inspired him.

“In my artwork, there are no permanent images. Although you may find similar imagery or materials in use, every project is completely unique different from the rest. It’s just like water, in the sense that you can use it in many ways: Consumption, Bathing, Spiritual, Sexual, Energy, etc.
Anything can be used as the medium to express an idea, concept, or work of art. For example, you could use plastic fork for lunch, but you could also use a steel fork. On the most basic level, what’s the difference? They are both forks?”
