Takashi Ishida

Born in 1972, ISHIDA Takashi is a painter and film artist. He mainly uses a technique of drawing animation, which consists in drawing lines and shooting them one frame at a time. By interposing multiplying lines, moving points or some other mobile element, Ishida's installations produce various changes in the quality of the space. He received the Most Promising Young Talent Prize of the Gotoh Commemorative Culture Award in 2007. He is also associate professor at Tama Art University.

His recent major exhibitions include “Quest for Vision Vol.2: Ishida Takashi and Genealogy of Abstract Animation” at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography in 2009, “MOT Collection Silent Narrator: On Plural Stories Special Feature: Takashi Ishida” at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo in 2011 and “Double Vision: Contemporary Art from Japan” at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art in 2012, “Image and Illusion: Video Works from the Yokohama Museum of Art” at the Singapore Art Museum in 2014.
