Jacob Hashimoto

JacobHashimoto

Jacob Hashimoto was born in Greeley, U.S.A., in 1973. He lives and works in Los Angeles.

Jacob Hashimoto is distinctly American yet he is also involved with his Japanese heredity in a genuinely creative, rather than imitative, manner. His latest development in

which, in place of cascading clouds of kites, there arise hills and waves, is as delicate as before. And, just as previously there was a sense of airiness rather than of oppression, so now there is a sense of being uplifted. The delicacy of his forms, whether they descend and envelop or expand and climb, creates as much a space for the spirit as for the body.
