Takahiko Hayashi b. 1961

Born in Gifu Prefecture, now a resident of Saitama Prefecture, Takahiko Hayashi diligently works at creating masterfully bold abstractions, often with vibrant color. His work has a mystical quality and the titles reflect interest in philosophy 'Considering Lao-Tse' as well as natural phenomena 'The Spinning Wind'.

Several different intaglio printmaking techniques are used in creating these prints. Unusual for this medium, the artist uses only one plate and prints only one time, so there is no problem in getting plates registered. However, it is a complex task of layering different pieces of colored paper and careful inking different colors on the plate. As a result, there are fine lines, bold strokes and mottled textural areas. It is the combination of elements conveying movement with those emblematic of solidity that give Hayashi's prints their strength and interest. Lines swirl and eddy, textures soften and modulate, block shapes rise from a rich colorful background. The artist may also combine separately printed sheets of paper into a single image, allowing for the combination of a richly varied palette.

Takahiko Hayashi received a BFA from Musashino Art University and an MFA in printmaking from the National University of Fine Arts and Music in Tokyo. After teaching for several years, he is now able to devote himself to artwork on a full time basis.
