Teppei Takeda - Paintings Of Painting

Publisher United Vagabonds

Idea Code 19485

Teppei Takeda’s abstract approach to painting has attracted a great deal of attention, but until recently the artist had remained unknown. Takeda first worked at Makoto Saito Design Office, but in 2005 set up his own atelier in Yamagata to focus on painting. This book features ‘Paintings of Painting’, the abstract series of portraits he has produced in the more than ten years since then. Working with bright colours and thick smears of paint, Takeda renders his subjects’ faces unrecognisable, yet still immediately human. The book is designed by renowned creative director Fabien Baron, and its cover features a special design that is wrapped in a full-size poster of one of the paintings.
