"TAKENOBU IGARASHI (Japanese, B. 1944)

Takenobu Igarashi graduated from Tama Art University in 1968, and completed postgraduate studies at California University in 1969. Igarashi attained international acclaim as a graphic designer in the mid-1970s with his architectural alphabets. His work subsequently evolved into three-dimensions, with alphabet sculptures and a variety of product designs. For the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Igarashi produced a series of graphics and designs by incorporating his architectural alphabets. In 1994, he ended his career as a designer and became a sculptor. He has since produced various sculptures, which were placed in public spaces all over Japan."
