Born in 1983 in Tokyo, a city witnessing the birth of the Gutaï movement, being the counterpart of the C.O.B.R.A. movement (Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam, the hometown of the painter Willem de Kooning), Takashi Hara has been delving into a universe around the figure of the pig for some years.
"I got the initial inspiration when I visited Chiran Peace Museum (for Kamikaze Pilots during WWII) to research what and how those teenagers had to go through the whole training and their very last mission. Simply put, I was moved by one photo that has 3 pilots smiling and encouraging each other 5mins before they took off to Hawaii. Not that I'm trying to bring anti-war thing into my art, but I just couldn't refuse this inspiration towards my little pigs. I didn't like the idea of making them in a commercial product like way". Takashi Hara
In 2019, A2Z Art gallery presented two solo exhibitions in both Paris and Hong Kong of the series Pig Nation - A story of humanity and are planning to exhibit other series by the artist in the near future.
