Misato Takahashi

Published: 03.05.2021

Misato Takahashi is a Japanese-born jeweller and artist based in Tarragona, Spain. She was introduced to jewellery making at Silverhub Studios in Edinburgh, UK, and eventually found herself studying artistic jewellery at Escola Massana in Barcelona. She is an animal lover since she grew up surrounded by nature, animals, and insects. You can find them in many of her works with her surreal touch. She has exhibited her works in countries such as Spain, Italy, UK and there will be more to be announced soon in 2021.
The World Within
It just started from a dream I had.
During my pregnancy, I dreamt of a ram with elongated thin legs. His body was transparent and it was holding a thick green forest inside. Such a powerful dream, in one of the most important moments of my life, reminded me of the power, mystery, and magic of life.
I decided to make a series of works out of this special experience combining with other enthusiasm of mine - science technology. It keeps surprising me with how much advancement humans are achieving in space exploring, AI and robots, medicine, etc… my interest lies in contemplating the future of humanity, the relationship between humans and nature.
In this series of works called “The World Within” you find many strange animals. I want people to enjoy celebrating our lives with them, but at the same time be agitated, even bothered mentally and emotionally to provoke some thoughts in us and eventually to be involved in my question – where are we, the humanity heading to?
