Catalyst Arts is pleased to present an exhibition by Japanese artist Kiyoshi Takahashi.

Kiyoshi Takahashi¹s work often consists of bold, simple, iconic images, especially exaggerated words and forms. The prototypical words and letters contain a sense of power, energy and strong will. The work’s have the initial impact of the exuberant world of the Manga comics.

His work is characterized by traditional themes and techniques of Japanese calligraphy combined with popular mass culture, such as advertising, comic books emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture.
