Kazuhito Takadoi

Kazuhito Takadoi

Inspired by the rich woodland surrounding his birthplace of Nagoya, Japan, Kazuhito grows and hand picks grasses, leaves and twigs from his garden, sowing each blade through the paper.  As the grasses dry and mature they embark on a subtle colour shift, comparative to seasonal change.  Kazuhito’s exquisite works are full of dichotomies:  His work is both minimal, yet opulent.  It is simultaneously fragile yet has strength, and combines the formality of Eastern discipline with abstraction from Western art.  Kazuhito trained in Agriculture and Horticulture in Japan the US and in the UK, before studying Art and Garden Design.
