Takahiro Kimura / Collage artist, illustrator & filmmaker

Takahiro Kimura was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1965

 

He studied technology of painting and graphic design at Salesian Polytechnic, and then studied skill of drawing, landscape painting and fashion drawing at Setsu Mode Seminar.

Since 1991, Takahiro Kimura has been creating own unique style of collages that strives to show the complicated nature of the human spirit through peculiar physical distortions.

His collages are made by cutting up photos and rearranging them into a collage to which color is then applied, thereby creating a whole new visage with an unforgettable impact.

[The faces] that Takahiro Kimura draws formidably conspicuously depict karmic suffering and ugliness of human being, which make them feel somewhere – lonely even though they are drawn with dazzlingly brilliant colors. Therefore, his paintings burn unforgettable intense impressions to consciousness of people who have seen them.

He has created a broad spectrum of works including illustrations for advertisements, books, exhibitions of his original works, and even a live painting demonstration in which he illustrated a gigantic face on canvas.

Since 2003, Kimura has evolved his interest in faces, producing a collaged animation series, which breathed new life into the hallucinatory, constantly mutating movements that emerge out of a single drawing.

His first art book [e-motion], published in 2010, has 10 collaged animation series.

He also made a short-film titled [meat], which was screened at Annecy Animation Film Festival(2010,France), MECAL(2011,Spain), Wiesbaden International Weekend of Animation(2010,Germany), and Short Shorts Film Festival(2011,Japan).

His animation series include a virtual company called [KIMSNAKE], in which many characters with strong personality sing and dance. They have been introduced to TV and website (www.kimsnake.jp)
