Taku Obata – B-Boy Sculptures

Japanese sculptor and B-Boy dancer Taku Obata creates brilliant wooden sculptures that pay homage to the breakdancing and hip-hop cultures. In the process of these works, Obata uses traditional Japanese carving techniques, which not only implements his heritage through the way he approaches his contemporary subject matter but also brings out the vibe of the message itself.
