“The essence of drawing is the line exploring space,” said Andy Goldsworthy, the preeminent land artist. And no other artworks feels more true to that quote than Hideki Inaba’s line drawings, which explore space in a most beautiful fashion, leaving behind it a visual trail of energy.
The self-taught artist and graphic designer began a side-project in 2004 titled NEWLINE – essentially a body of work the created on his own will and volition. At a new exhibition taking place at the trendy CrossHotel in Sapporo, Inaba will be showing his collection of work in a show titled VECTA. The exhibition closes November 3, 2013 at which point it will travel abroad to Taiwan and Shanghai.
