田島享央己

Takaoki Tajima

アウトローな気質をそなえ、彫刻だけでなく絵画領域にフィールドを広げ、幅広く活動している。2頭身の立体作品は、ニュートラルな立ち姿で観る者に様々な想像力を掻き立て、人気に火をつけた。また、木彫作品からも伺える色彩感覚と空間構成のセンスが平面にも発揮されている。シンプルに且つ大胆に構成され、隣り合った色と色の関係性が際立った背景の中に描かれたキャラクターは何とも不思議な表情や動きで描かれている。
2020年にはNYで個展が開催されるなど、日本に留まらず、海外でも人気も上昇。2022年は、世の風潮に逆らうように制作し続けたロック魂がスパークし、自身の半生をコミカルに描いた初のリトグラフ作品「LIFE」シリーズを発表する。ペシミスティックな題材をアチャラカに表現する高度なセンスが高い評価を得ており、糸井重里のエッセイ本「生まれちゃった」の装丁を手掛けるなど、田島革命が実を結びつつある。2023年3月にはアートフェア東京にてソロで発表。

With an outlaw temperament, he has expanded his practice to include not only sculpture but also painting, and is active in a wide range of fields. His sculptures of little characters, with their neutral standing posture, have captured the imagination of viewers and ignited his popularity. The artist's sense of color and spatial composition, evident in his wood carvings, is also evident in his two-dimensional works. The characters depicted in the backgrounds, which are composed simply and boldly, emphasizing the relationship between colors next to each other, have mysterious expressions and movements.

His popularity is growing not only in Japan but also abroad, as evidenced by his solo exhibition in New York in 2020. In 2022 he presented his first series of lithographs, ""LIFE,"" which comically depicts his life, sparked by the rock spirit he has been creating in defiance of the current trends in the world. The Tajima Revolution is coming to fruition, and he has exhibited solo at Art Fair Tokyo in March 2023.
