Koichiro Takagi

東京で生まれ、San Franciscoのアートスクールで様々な素材を学び、しばらくNYを制作拠点にした後に帰国した高木はペインティングから刺繍まで作風の幅は広い。しかし幅広い表現方法において一貫して言えるのは彼の作品はある種の居心地の悪さや矛盾を内包しており、モチーフに「人」がほとんど出て来ることがないことである。


国内外の企画展やグループ展の参加や個展開催で画家として精力的な活動し、FENDI、PORTER、Paul Smithなどのアパレルブランドへのデザイン提供やコラボレーションも多く行っている。NY Timesなど国内外のメデイアにも紹介されている。
