Japanese visual artist TAKORA, Kimiyoshi Futori’s first solo exhibition “PATTERNS & SEQUENCES” in Hong Kong is holding at LCX, till June 14th.

TAKORA focuses on “Cheap Pop Visual that Makes Life Happy”. He likes to attract viewers by his eye-catching patterns. He has successfully established a distinctive personal image and style. His “grAphic tAkorA” named visual leaps from genre to genre, venturing from textile design for high fashion brands to display for global brands.

For this exhibition, he illustrates how his patterns can be extended across space to bring enjoyment to people. He makes character icons from campaign patterns and makes them 3-dimenstional to create a space where you feel part of the 2-Dimensional pattern.

In 2015, TAKORA has made up the visual image with fun for people who love shopping for LCX. The “Fun Fun Shoppers” illustrates the happy feeling by pop-up heart icon, singing flower icon and shining star icon. And another collection “TAKO LABO” by TAKORA is shown in the middle of the store. It mainly consists of fabric items with grAphic tAkorA pattern designs, which are launched through exhibitions.
