Takashi Ishida is a painter and film artist and currently works as Associate Professor at Tama Art University. Takashi Ishida is perhaps best known for his ‘drawing animation’, a technique in which he creates lines by hand and then shoots them one frame at a time. As the lines multiply, he continues to draw, erase, overlay and document them, creating videos and installations that transform the quality of the given space through repetitive gestures given over to discipline and control.

Ishida works has been shown in solo and group exhibitions such as Sharjah Biennial 13 (2017); Yokohama Museum of Art,  Yokohama, Japan (2015); Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum, Naha, Japan (2015); The Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo (2011); The Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo (2009); Aichi Triennale 2016; Dojima River Biennale (2013); Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Russia (2012); The National Art Center Tokyo (2010); Takamatsu City Museum of Art (2010).

He received the Most Promising Young Talent Prize of the Gotoh Commemorative Culture Award in 2007.
