Taka | Upfest


I am a Japanese artist and illustrator currently based in Hong Kong. I was born and raised in Japan where I established a love of Japanese traditional and contemporary art. I am one of the finalists of Secret Walls x Hong Kong series 4, and I am the Hong Kong winner of the Vans Asia Custom Culture competition and one of the finalists in Asia. I also participated in Hong Kong’s annual Street art festival called HKWalls. My art is influenced by snowboarding, tattoo and street art culture.
