Hideki Kimura, who declared himself an artist on his 60th birthday has painted more than 250 murals in Japan and abroad in the last 20 years. This marks his first time presenting a framed painting-type artwork.
Born in Izumiohtsu City, Osaka in 1942.
Graduated from the Kyoto City University of Arts, Department of Design, and worked as a lecturer at the same university.
Produced many legendary events as an organizer in the early days of rock music in Japan.
Became an artist at the age of 60. He has created more than 200 murals in Japan and abroad. His life with rock music can be seen in his dynamic paintings. Instead of going to the canvas in his studio, he wants to paint “live” in the city. He is a unique artist who advocates the ultimate in amateurism.
His collections include “As I Live,” “Mukamonaka,” and “LIVE.”
In 2012, he provided artwork for Japan Tourism Agency’s “Japan. Thank You.” promotional campaign and was selected for the TBS news program, NEWS23X’s art project, “23XArt”. Takashimaya also adopted Kimura’s artwork for the summer and winter gift season campaign for 3 consecutive years.
