Lisa Takahashi was born in London and studied Fine Art at Bath School of Art and Design and Middlesex University. Her brightly colour linocut prints combine influences from both the Japanese and British aspects of her heritage. She uses a multi-block method and utilises the transparency of selected pigments to create interesting mixes as they are layered upon the page. Cycling imagery is a favourite subject matter; for the artist the interdependence of racing road cyclists to help build collective speed is emblematic of the best of humanity. Added to this is a celebration of speed, colour and shape, that follows in the tradition of the Futurists and Grosvenor School printmakers of the 20th century before her.
Lisa Takahashi has exhibited extensively within the UK including at the Royal Academy of Arts, the New English Art Club, The Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers. Christian. We're delighted to present some of her work for the first time in France.
