Takanobu Kobayashi is regarded as one of the most influential contemporary Japanese painter. He was born in 1960 , Tokyo and graduated from the oil painting major of Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts in 1986. After he stayed in Bangkok by scholarship of Bereau of Cultural Properties from 1996 to 1997, he has been working either in Bangkok or in Tokyo.
In the spring of 2004, Meguro Museum of Art held Kobayashiユs solo exhibition, titled "KOBAYASHI Takanobu - Endless Summer" including from his early submarine paintings to the latest works of the date; the "Sunbather" series. In the exhibition his unique sense of reality was highly evaluated from the public.
Kobayashi is constantly showing his works in Nishimura Gallery since 1996. The "Sunbather" series were first shown in his solo exhibition in October 2003, titled "On a Beach". In each of the paintings, a person lying in the sunshine is pictured, quietly and alone with his or her eyes closed, which is a depiction of a drifting spirit between real and unreal, or between life and death. The solo exhibition in the next year was presenting a series of his illustrations for 'A Rabbit and a Trumpet', which is the serial story by Kei Nakazawa in Komei newspaper. In his latest exhibition "Mono to Kokoro" in 2006, Kobayashi painted large faces and mysteriously but confidentially, had their eyes opened for the first time.
In 2007, he exhibited his works for the inaugural exhibition of Yokosuka Museum of Art, titled "IKIRU - Reality by 9 Artists", and from 2008 to 2010, He exhibits for "neoteny Japan -Takahashi collection-"(KIRISHIMA OPEN-AIR MUSEUM, Sapporo Artpark, The Ueno Royal Museum, and in addition, it goes around three museums). we believe that which may assure once again Kobayashi's consistent deep spirituality.
