Takanori Aiba is a Japanese artist who has studied Japanese traditional textiles and dyed clothing in Tokyo Zokei University. He is a former maze illustrator since 1978. He founded his own company,”Graphics and Designing Inc.”, in 198 and he expanded his career to a concept maker and art director for architectural spaces. Since 2003 he put his mind to create three dimensional art works which combines his knowledge and experience of both maze illustrator and architect.
“Kazuko Todate, Art Critic, talks about our exhibition: *1″Works are created through Aiba’s extraordinary fantastic and sometimes even chimerical imaginations. However, they do not look like pipe dreams. In fact people believe that they are real buildings and spaces because Aiba depicts not only the outline but also all of the elaborate details in each works. Though the paintings are flat and two-dimensional, Aiba creates images of the side, back, and even the inside of the buildings. Aiba’s eyes circle around, and sometimes intentionally wander between buildings in the space.”
