After having experience of 3D graphics and animation at Tokyo Institute of Technology creative laboratory, and Gonzo Co., Ltd., Taketo started his own project as an artist. Using digital technology like CG, 3D printing as his "brush", Taketo creates a wide variety of artworks from 3D printed sculpture to animation. In a collaboration project XSENSE, Taketo utilizes CGI in street art to create murals(Denver, CO, USA), also using his unique style animation for stage design and collaborated with contemporary Noh theatrical group. In addition to creating his own artworks, Taketo curates the group art show "ARTs of JOMON" hosted by Japanese non-profit JOMONISM, keep introducing contemporary artists/artworks influenced by ancient Japanese Jomon culture.(Aomori Museum of Art / Spiral Garden / Denver International Airport / Kuala Lumpur) It is Taketo's mission to make invisible things, emotions, energy, and the next dimensions of consciousness into "shapes".
My focus is fusing boundary between virtual and real world by using connection of cutting edge digital technology, such as CG, 3D printers, CNC, etc., and artistic concept.Conceptually in my idea, characters in contemporary Japanese subculture like manga, anime are coming back of animistic belief/feeling rooted in ancient Japanese Jomon culture. "We all had animistic feelings in our ancient time. The idea that everything in nature has energy or spirit inside can be found anywhere in the world. So I'm not just talking about Japanese culture but the hidden layer of all humanity". My artworks are fusion of spiritual energy/ancient spirit, or whatever we can not know and cutting edge digital technology.
