(b. 1958)
Honda Takeshi was born in 1958 in Yamaguchi Prefecture. For Honda, before the age of thirty, drawing and painting as a means of expressing his emotions was an activity limited to his free time. It was only after he moved to Tono, Iwate Prefecture, in 1987 that he fully embarked on a career as an artist. Since then, he has continued to depict the mountains in Tono in order to explore and question the interconnectedness among nature, environment and himself for more than 3 decades. Honda’s works are in the collections of major art museums in Japan and abroad, such as Iwate Prefectural Museum of Art, Kumamoto Museum of Modern Art, Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Drawing Center (New York), and others. He lives and works in Tono.
