Takeru Iwazaki

1980年生まれ。

富士山、駿河湾といった豊かな自然を湛えると同時に、東京と名古屋の中間地点として古くから独特のテンポで発展してきた静岡という土地。その、自然の営みと人の営みとが織りなす波長の中で育まれた。

自然と身近にあったボールペン等の文房具を絵筆として本格的な創作活動を開始。ストリートカルチャーや音楽、寺社仏閣、そして彼を育んできた自然の営み…それまでに触れてきた全てがイマジネーションの源泉となり、ペン先を通じてその失われたアイデンティティを再構築していった。

年月を経て独学で生み出した画法、職人的な技術と集中力によって描かれる筆跡は、森羅万象に流れる生命エネルギーの具現化であり、自身でも予測することのできないインナートリップの軌跡そのものである。

 現在は生まれ育った静岡を拠点に作品制作、個展、ライブペイント、アートプロジェクトへの参加、建築や店舗の壁画制作、ブランドコラボなど多岐に渡る活動を展開、日々実験と発見の追求を楽しんでいる。その手によって生命を与えられた有機質と無機質は緻密で流麗な線となり、絡み合いながら無限に展開してゆく。それはキャンパスを、そして街を蔦のように覆い、確実にその繁茂を広げている。

Born in 1980, Shizuoka, Japan. 

Boasting rich nature, including Mt. Fuji and Suruga Bay, Shizuoka has developed for generations at its own unique tempo as the half way point between Tokyo and Nagoya. It is in this land, woven by the vibrations of the workings of nature and man, that Takeru Iwazaki was raised. 

He started working with ballpoint pens and other stationaries he found lying around close at hand. Street culture, music, shrines and temples, the nature that he grew up in…all that he had come in contact with up until then had become his origin for imagination. Threw the tip of his pen, he started to rebuild the identity that he had lost.

Born from a self-taught drawing technique that originated over many years, a craftsman-like skill and a transcendental concentration, his handwriting is the embodiment of the energy of life that flows through everything in the universe and is the very track left behind while on an inner trip that the artist himself is unable to predict.

Currently based in his hometown of Shizuoka, he enjoys working across many fields, creating original work, holding exhibitions, doing Live Painting, participating in art projects, creating murals for architecture and store fronts and collaborating with designer brands, all while pursuing daily experiments and discoveries. It is by his hand, that life-receiving organic and inorganic material, become precise and elegant lines, infinitely entangling off into eternity. What’s created, is like an ivy, that crawls across the canvas and across the city, slowly but surely expanding its luscious reach.
