About Taku Obata:
“A self-proclaimed “B-BOY Sculptor,” TAKU OBATA is an artist who uses B-BOY (break-dancer) as a motif in many of his works. After leaving behind his days of dancing and basketball in his native Tokorozawa (Saitama Prefecture), he decided to pursue sculpting at Tokyo University of the Arts (Geidai) after three years of entrance exams. Afterward, he gained much attention for winning the grand prize at TOKYO WONDERWALL for his final university work and is now well-known for his B-BOY-inspired artwork in Japan and overseas.” ~Find out more about Taku HERE
