Aya Takano’s artistry has yet to be fully dissected by the art world at large. She is that rarest of creators who forges their own unique artistic context – one that is far ahead of its time. Her work draws its themes from the schematics of unknown worlds, the frayed edges of society, misshapen animal life forms, and the dogma of human desire.

When it was time for her to start thinking about college, Takano told her parents she wouldn't attend unless she was allowed to enter an art program. In 2000, she received a bachelor's degree from Tama Art University in Tokyo, and, soon after, became an assistant for leading Japanese Contemporary Artist Takashi Murakami, the founder of the Superflat art movement, who became her first mentor and jump-started her career.

In the 1980s, the look of pre-pubescent girls became the target of consumer culture in Japanese society. This infantilization and objectification of the female was seen most heavily in Japan's otaku culture. Japanese female artists like Takano seek to reinvent the otaku culture through a feminine perspective. Takano in particular is interested in depicting how the future will impact the role of the female heroine in society. Her figures, often androgynous, float through her alternate realities partially clothed or fully nude. Takano denies that she is trying to reveal anything specific about sex, but rather, with the slim bodies, bulbous heads, and large eyes, she is trying to emphasize her figures' temporary suspension from adulthood; the redness on the figures' joints, such as the elbows, knees, and shoulders, is supposed to convey that they are still engaged in the growing process, mentally and physically. Takano's playful and ambiguous visions of the future, especially one which revolves around the feminine, serves as a way for her to create her own mythology, free from the chains of reality. She is represented by Galerie Perrotin, Hong Kong & Paris


Aya Takano (タカノ綾 , Takano Aya, born December 22, 1976) is a Japanese Superflat artist, manga artist, and science fiction essayist.


It took thirty years for society to unlock the labyrinthine content of the novels of Phillip K. Dick and other hard-boiled 1960’s science fiction authors, a fact that is reinforced by the way their material has formed the mainstream of Hollywood literary adaptations since the 1990s. Likewise, the true value of Takano’s work lies thirty or more years in the future, when audiences will decipher the vast range of uncharted information which lies beneath its surface.
