Short Biography: 

Takahiro Iwasaki (岩崎 貴宏 Iwasaki Takahiro, born 1975 in Hiroshimais a Japanese artist and sculptor. He has exhibited in international settings including the Seoul Museum of Art in South Korea, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art in Russia, the Queensland Art Gallery in Australia, and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France.
    Description of artist style:

His most well-known series of works is Out of Disorder, which reproduces architectural structures from rendered unusual materials such as hair, dusts, threads, towels, and toothbrushes. Subjects include the Wonder Wheel in Coney Island, the Cosmoworld in Yokohama, and also shipyards and oil refineries. The series also includes topographical maps sculpted on rolls of duct tape, including a reproduction of the Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. It was exhibited at the Cornerhouse gallery in Manchester, United Kingdom in 2011, at the Asian Art Biennial in the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in 2013, and at the Kawasaki City Museum in 2014, among others.

What I like about the artist:

He used recycled materials that can be found anywhere for example toothbrushes, thread, duct tapes and dusts to create something new. His work therefore promotes creativity and sustainability to the environment.
His artworks come in various sizes from big bold floating buildings to the finest intricate detailed sculptures.
