Lives and works in Paris, France
A graduate of Musashino Art University in Tokyo, Mizukami Taka has been living in France since 1980. The artist shows his work there, under his artistic name, Taka, and participates in exhibitions in Japan, Germany and Monaco. Taka’s paintings are characterized by their sensitive, harmonious compositions that elegantly combine shapes, materials and colours. The artist uses marble dust, mineral pigments and gold leaf, which he affixes to wood or canvas. His universe is marked by the traditional opposition of yin and yang, femininity and virility, all through overlapping and suggestion.
