Jiro Takamatsu

Pioneering conceptualist Jiro Takamatsu (1936–1998), a major influence on the artists of the Mono-ha movement, had a career that spanned forty-plus years, during which time his considerable influence as an artist, theorist, and teacher extended across the Japanese postwar cultural landscape. Grounded in broad philosophical principles, Takamatsu sought to take art outside of the confines of conventional and institutional settings, collapsing the boundaries between art and life. His practice shifts across appearance and materials, from drawing and sculpture to photography.
