In the paintings of Takuma Tanaka, imagination flourish in the purest form uninhibited by the need to be logical. The vibrancy of his paintings comes from the authentic impulses within and in creating his own order of things. His subjects adorned a simplicity of form, often reduced to their essentials in colour and line, Tanaka’s mixture of cartoon imagery and raw brushwork ignites with energy and stood out in their casualness in a personal way.
