Orecho Studio

HONDA TAKAO
Artist / Designer / Gallery4830 Director

Born in 1977 in Fukuoka, Japan.
2001 Graduated from Musashino Art University in Tokyo. majored in display and fashion design.

Engaged in music-related illustrations and design projects while in university.
After graduating from university, I worked as an illustrator, web and graphic designer, and rock band (Vo) in Tokyo.

I started full-fledged artist activities in 2005. Creation at between design and art begins for self-growth and self-affirmation.

Relocated to Fukuoka where I was born in 2011.
I created a character called "Orecho (It was so named because it always exceeds myself. In japanese mean Ole=myself, cho=overcome) by fusing my series of artworks.
Many of my artworks are based on "words to grow up myself" and "thinking" and "images", Among them, "Orecho" is painted as an expresser who projects myself.
The delicate and powerful lines and vivid colors that characterize the artwork were brought up by Japanese and American cultures such as manga, anime, and street fashion.

Currently works as an artist, designer, and "Gallery4830" gallery director.
