I have just gotten interested in the Kyoto-based video artist/musician, Takagi Masakatsu. He is a pretty young guy (25 or 26), so he has only been doing stuff for the past four years or so, but I like what I have been seeing so far.
I think that his music is overall sort of lame, but his video work makes up for it. His work is incredibly vibrant, and sometimes I think he may overdo this aspect of his work, but I like color, and I like how he fully utilizes it. In fact, it is one of his black and white works, Light Park #2, that I think is one of his strongest pieces!
I also enjoy his Animation for TV, although I know little of that work. Is ths stuff actually shown on TV? What channel would be playing this stuff?
