Born in 1972 in Tokyo, ISHIDA is a painter and film artist. He most commonly uses a technique of drawn animation in which he draws lines in the space and shoots images of them one frame at a time. By interposing multiplying lines, moving points, and other mobile elements, his installations change the quality of the space. He received the Most Promising Young Talent Prize of the Gotoh Commemorative Culture Award in 2007. He is an associate professor at Tama Art University. His recent major exhibitions include MOT Collection Silent Narrator: On Plural Stories Special Feature: Takashi Ishida (Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, 2011), Double Vision: Contemporary Art from Japan (Moscow Museum of Modern Art, 2012), Distilling Senses: A Journey through Art and Technology in Asian Contemporary Art (Hong Kong Art Centre, Hong Kong, 2013), and BILLOWING LIGHT: ISHIDA Takashi (Solo Exhibition, Yokohama Museum of Art / Okinawa Prefectural Museum & Art Museum, 2015).
