Born in 1984 in Tottori, Japan, Takahiro Yamamoto moved to Spain then to Singapore after graduating from high school in Japan, and now lives and works in New York. Utilizing archival images and found objects such as photographs and postcards, Yamamoto adopts Hyperrealism style to question the relationship between original and its reproduction, revealing the ability of the latter to achieve its own uniqueness through the passage of time. Besides the dexterity and meticulousness of his works, Yamamoto portrays the course of time in palpable ways, bringing the viewer to a new expressive field where time becomes matter. His works where presented in various solo shows including “Aging Painting” Gallery Kogure/ Hpgrp gallery (New York, 2017), “The genuine truth behind truths”, Gallery Kogure (New York, 2016), “Where the artificial stops and the real starts”, Gallery Kogure (Tokyo, 2013), along with a number of group shows in Asia and beyond.
