About Artist: Artist Lisa Takahashi was born in 1981 to a Japanese mother and an English father and grew up in North London, where she currently lives and works. Lisa Takahashi studied Fine Art at Bath Spa University College and Middlesex University. Following her graduation she has been working as a painter and printmaker from her studio in North London. Lisa Takahashi has also worked as an assistant to artists Stephen Walter and Hugo Grenville. Lisa Takahashi draws inspiration for her work from the vibrancy of everyday life and the English countryside. She is influenced by the work of British Modernist printmakers such as the Grosvenor School, Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious. Lisa Takahashi’s work is reminiscent of work made in 1950s Britain yet this does not undermine its relevance in today’s visual culture. I make strong geometric designs that are based on images that celebrate the joy of life. I aim to create patterns out of the everyday, and use bright, harmonious colour to render the shapes that I cut out of lino. I almost exclusively make 3-colour linocut prints, cutting 3 separate tiles for each image and printing one over another.
