Art of Takayuki Takeya is one of superb creativity and blending possibilities where there are none. In this set of sculptures, the same creativity meets different genres, cutting across their lines to mold them into something that is not just entirely different, but also one that shows a fascinating train of thought.
It is the same idea which makes characters from Star Wars don Samurai armor and Aliens finally taming predators to a friendly enough level that they now ride them. Many of these sculptures are based on well known franchises, though others too find a place in the monster-ific setting.
Takayuki Takeya’s sculptures were on display at 3331 Arts Chiyoda, being his first exhibit in over a decade.
