Takahide Komatsu

With “Homage to Körin,” Takahide Komatsu brings ethereal Japanese Rinpa school-inspired paintings to Fabrik Gallery. The artist draws from and modernizes painting techniques developed in 17th century Kyoto, merging the traditional background patterns of shimmering gold and silver leaf with detailed depictions of native plant and animal species in bold, vibrant colors. Takahide Komatsu was born in Miyazaki, Japan, in 1979 and graduated in 2000 from the Artist Course at Kyusyu Designer Gaukin. His works have been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout Asia and Japan, as well as New York and London.
