Jirō Takamatsu was an influential artist, theorist, and teacher in 1960s and 1970s Japan. Takamatsu dominated Japanese artistic discourse during those years as a cofounder of the legendary and radical art collective Hi Red Center in 1963 and as a key figure in the development of Mono-Ha, literally translated as ‘School of Things'. Linking to Arte Povera and Post-Minimalism, Mono-Ha extolled the use of natural materials and objects, emphasizing the importance of materiality and the environment. 

His work combined subversive and playful aspects of Dada and Surrealism with an idiosyncratic use of Minimalism’s refined visual language. Takamatsu worked in a range of mediums, including sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, and performance, and probed the material and metaphysical foundations of artistic practice.

Takamatsu is especially renowned for a lifelong exploration that resulted in the celebrated ‘Shadow Paintings'. Inspired by images of shadows in 19th-century Japanese painting and woodcuts as well as by real-life shadows cast on paper sliding-doors in domestic settings, Takamatsu’s Shadow Painting series (1964–98) investigated the formal underpinnings of painting through delicate depictions of shadows in enamel and acrylic.

Takamatsu has been the subject of major solo retrospectives in Japan; represented Japan at the Venice Biennale (1968); exhibited at the Paris Biennial (1969); Sao Paulo Biennial (1973); and Documenta Kassel (1977). His work has been included at group shows at the Guggenheim Museum (1971 and 1994); Centre Pompidou, Paris (1986); and Yokohoma Art Museum, Japan (1994).  

Born 1936 in Tokyo, Japan. Died 1998 in Tokyo, Japan.
