Takashi Iwasaki was born in Hokkaido (1982), Japan. Iwasaki moved to Winnipeg (Canada) to study fine arts at the University of Manitoba in 2002, where he earned Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Now he lives and works in Winnipeg.

His art practice diverges into many mediums from embroidery, paintings, collages, to sculptures; inspired by things and events which surround his daily life as sources of his creation.

“Most of my recent works are either visual recording of my daily life or visualization of my imaginary worlds or landscapes that no one would see unless otherwise depicted.

They may appear to be abstract on the surface, but most shapes and colors have meanings and origins that are very significant to me in the way I feel them, therefore they are very representational and are reflection of my state of mind.

Things that I feel are never the same in the next moment because I keep changing. Capturing moments and sharing my visions with others have been my recent obsession and pleasure”.
