Profile

Masaaki Takeuchi was born in Shizuoka in 1955. He entered the Tokyo National University of

Art and Music in 1975 where he acquired techniques and skills for creating Japanese-style paintings
under distinguished painters such as Ikuo Hirayama, Yoshihiko Yoshida and Yoshihiro Shimoda.
After graduation, he was supposed to go on a promising career path by holding solo exhibitions
in Paris and other cities in Europe and New York, but his sudden illness took away all of such
arrangements and forced him to return to his home in Shizuoka for recuperation.He spent some
years suffering from mental agony with his life isolated from the art world. In 1999, however,people
around him noticed his extraordinary artistic ability and supported him for  restarting his painting
activities.
@Since then, belonging to no art group, he has been active creating breathtaking art works in

Shizuoka.

@He hopes that people can feel fragrances from the flowers in his works, gentle breeze from his
landscapes, and graciousness from the portraits he paints.
@He now lives in a rural area in Shizuoka with his wife and a dog.

Lastly, he would like to express his great appreciation to the people who have been supporting
him including those who created this website for him.
