Born in 1984 in Nagano, Japan, Hirabayashi Takahiro was greatly influenced by the buddhist history of his home town. Having studied art in Tokyo, Hirabayashi uses refined oil painting skills to create works drenched in Buddhist symbolism and mythology, often exploring his central theme of "boundaries". We are all familiar with the boundaries he explores: Sky and land, human and nature, youth and adulthood, one of the reasons Hirabayashi's work is so universally appreciated. The young women and girls who appear in his work serve as mystical guides and guardians, protecters of serenity and innocence.
