JAPANESE, BORN 1980
Taku Obata formed the hip-hop dance crew Unityselections and refined his style of breakdancing through live performances in 1999. He is an artist who produces spatial installations that take "b-boying" (hip-hop style) as their theme and consist of 3D works.
His own identity as a b-boy who does break-dancing is a major foundation of his art. His actual-size b-boy wooden statues look as if they are ready to break into some powerful dance moves at any moment. Rendered in dynamic poses and somewhat amusing in appearance, they enjoy widespread popularity inside and outside Japan.
