Kota Takeuchi
Kota Takeuchi

Born in Hyogo, Japan in 1982.

"Originally coming from an interest in the public nature and the phenomenon of group consciousness, my creations are mainly based on a personal approach to cityscape, public art, and so on.While presupposing that personal unconscious desires pull the strings of group surface consciousness, I am willing to extract relevant images of people and society.By trial and error, I aim at uncovering the influence the artificially determined landscapes and rules have on the senses." (Kota Takeuchi)
