Takahiko Hayashi resides in Japan. Inspired by philosophy, poetry and natural phenomenon, Takahiko Hayashi’s prints are abstract compositions of swirling lines and spatial elements in bold, yet subtle color combinations.
Hayashi is a Master in the intaglio technique of Etching with Chine Colle, which results in fine line and pattern combined with deep, soft, bright and varied color. He prints on a custom designed press, invented with his engineer father, and is thus able to print works of large dimension. A special paper - thick and luxurious - adds much to the rich effect of his wonderful works.
The artist's color etching and paintings are widely shown in Japan, and he has exhibited in several countries. Hayashi is represented in the United States by SCRIPTUM Fine Japanese Prints.
