Hirofumi Takemoto was born in Osaka in 1966. He graduated from the Department of Fine Arts, Osaka University of Arts. He works mainly as an installation and performance artist. In recent years he has continued to work with acrylics on canvas. The theme of his work is to define globalization as the Europeanization of the world, and by bringing non-Western, pre-modern values into it, to create cultural dissimilarity. As a concrete form, he creates works based on the pre-modern art of Kitagawa Utamaro.
