HELLO, I AM HERE: ART BY KAZUKI TAKAMATSU. DRAGO Arts and Communication s.r.l., Rome, 2015. 120 pp. with 107 col. ills. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9788898565115 In English.
Publisher's description: The volume is the first monograph by the Japanese artist Kazuki Takamatsu, published on the occasion of his comeback with the solo show "Even a Doll Can Do It", from February 14th to April 4th, at the Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, the diamond point in the European Pop Surrealist scene. The artist puts up feminine bodies, half dolls, with japanese features, painted in black and white through the depth mapping technique, which gets from digital research to gouache and acrylic painting, achieving a multilayered and tridimensional effect, full of transparencies, inspired by the holograms and the X-ray vision. The book, with its elegant cover and numerous images, allows the reader to discover Kazuki Takamatsu's iconography, its roots - from nature to manga - and the dialogue between popular culture, technology and the study of moods and states of mind. The result is an intimate universe, permeated by melancholy, in which the choice of monochromatism recalls the fight between the good and the evil, the marginal area between the light and the darkness.
