Biography

     Takayoshi Ueda was born in Osaka Prefecture in 1969 and studied oil painting at

     art school in Kyoto.

     Taking inspiration from an experience he had while attending university, in which

     he was able to see the expressiveness made possible through a computer with

     monochrome illustration software, in 1994 he began to introduce computer-related

     methods into his work.
     Mr. Ueda's work has transitioned over the years, passing through an early fantastical

     style using input materials like hand-painted paper and associated textures, to a stage

     that began in 2008, in which digital collages are employed in various ways to produce

     works composed of irregular flora and fauna.
     Mr. Ueda continues to produce paintings and collages integrating computer-generated

     output from his studio in Wakayama Prefecture.
     He has also come to use some of his works as graphic designs for apparel and other

     products, and, from 2011 onward, has displayed these pieces in several individual

     exhibitions.

     Originally from Japan, Mr. Ueda has gone on to present his work internationally in

     Europe, America and Southeast Asia, starting with an individual exhibition held in

     New York in 2007.
