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)
