Suzuki Takako was born and raised in Japan. Self-taught to become an emerging artist, Takako’s
narrative can look deceptively simple and candid. Her paintings have distinctive elements, and the elongated child-like characters in her artwork are graceful, soft, vibrant, and illustrative of mundane life. Each individual's behaviors become a conveyor of certain sophisticated emotions, and she expresses sensitive feelings by using various delicate colors and a high level of complex
Daily experiences leave an impression on her and influences her work in conscious and unconscious ways. Takako can be touched by the texture and composition of nature, of food, of animal fur, and after being collected in tranquility, these miscellaneous impressions are transformed into visual elements in her own work.
Takako invites her public to come together and develop their own stories when looking at her art. As more people see her artwork and the characters enter the viewer’s hearts, she hopes the world inside her can also expand and the reception can create new perspectives for her creativity. Her goal is to encourage communication between people with different perspectives, and this communication can take on more tacit forms like the looking at a painting. She has a strong belief in the conversation between different minds and sees her art as a neutral space that nurtures such conversation with color, texture and composition.
Previously, Takako has held two solo exhibitions – “Ambiguous Us” and “We will Meet up Soon”. Her work has also been previously seen at Hongkong Art Central from 2020 to 2022.
