My life changed greatly when i first met an activity of live painting. At that time I felt the wonder of painting:I can paint. I am under the codition where I can paint, and now I am living. Feeling happy with it, I meant to be true to myself.

One day I found a being “painting” in myself. I asked him. “May I pant?” and he answered, “Of course you may” Since then he let me continue to paint gratefully to him.

About Ikko Taniuchi
Painter and painting dancer, who lives in Osaka, Japan
Born in 1984.

I began painting when I lived in Hong Kong for a year as young boy.
 Even now I remember the sceneries I saw and the happenings I had.

Since 2005, when I was a college student, started a solo exhibition “Taniuchi Ikko Jidai”(the Age of Ikko Taniuchi).. at many galleries (Gaiiery Marya, Disco Beans and others) and showed acrylic, water-color and hundreds of crayon paintings.

Now I give my exhibition abroad in Melbourne. My passionate strong style attracts various fans such as film directors, photographers, musicians, and persons of old age and the same generation. I have held frequent parties with them as I like meeting and chatting with them.
