Takahiro Kimura

Takahiro Kimura’s work is straight out wonderful. I remember as a kid we used to do rubs. You could take parts of the newspaper or comic book and by rubbing on the back of a picture or a column the ink would be pressed onto the paper underneath. (I don’t know if it’ll work anymore.) I’m sure this is not how Kimura works but the effect is similar. Maybe I’m just being nostalgic. But a tour of his sight would be a revelation to anyone.

Wonderful post! I love how flat and two-dimensional these pieces are… but then, the colors and vibrance and variation in media add a hint of three-dimensionality to them as well. Thank you for a wonderful post! Oh, and I remember making rubbing artwork as a child… newspaper rubbings and I also remember leaf rubbings. 🙂 Is that what is going on here… My eyesight isn’t the greatest so all I see is a collage of things… but I can’t make out the materials on my computer screen… however, I must dig out my child rubbing art in the meantime… this post has given me great inspiration! 🙂

This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
