Jacob Hashimoto was born in Greeley, U.S.A., in 1973.
Jacob Hashimoto is distinctly American yet he is also involved with his Japanese heredity in a genuinely creative, rather than imitative, manner.
Using sculpture, painting, and installation, Jacob Hashimoto creates complex worlds from a range of modular components: bamboo-and-paper kites, model boats, even astroturf-covered blocks. His accretive, layered compositions reference video games, virtual environments, and cosmology, while also remaining deeply rooted in art-historical traditions notably, landscape-based abstraction, modernism, and handcraft.
