Moemi Takano

Using urban tapestries to reflect the contemporary world, emerging artist Moemi Takano combines culturally potent handcraft with contemporary reinvention.
Looking at Takano’s work, it’s a delight to see that the distinctive ethnic traits of her craft are not lost to modernism. Instead, Takano uses a variety of mark-making, embroidery, and dyeing techniques to create captivating homages to traditional Japanese handcraft; the artist then compliments these creations to sensational effect by reimagining them in a contemporary light.
The effect of Takano’s work is striking, and emits a powerful message which serves to remind us all of the resilient bonds between new and old.
