Artwork overflowing with laughter! The "concept" of this exhibition is to feature pieces that have plenty of ideas, but no titles!

"I wonder if people will enjoy my paintings and exhibited works." These were the words from the man himself when discussing his decision to put on this exhibition. There's countless nostalgic works, pieces you can't help but stop and stare at, as well as those that make you want to chuckle.

All of them possess that uniquely imaginative quality that we have come to associate with the multi-talented Beat Takeshi. Drawings and paintings are where Beat Takeshi is at his most playful. It's in these artistic mediums that you can immerse yourself and feel from thoughts. And from Saturday 3rd September, the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, will be hosting an exhibition featuring about 100 pieces of his artwork, including colorful drawings, prints and collages that are practically overflowing with Takeshi's playful, fun-loving character!

Make sure to go along and don’t miss out on the chance to experience it for yourself! (Editorial Dept.: Sassy)

Beat Takeshi Profile

Has been appearing on television for half a century. The name "Beat Takeshi" started with the formation of the comedy double act Two Beats. Around that time he started performing the now famous "komanechi" gesture that would prove to be hugely popular with audiences at home, created the group known as "Takeshi Gundan (lit. Takeshi's Defense Troops)," and also started providing sharp, insightful commentary on events of the day.

Stars and directs films under the name Takeshi Kitano. Won the Golden Lion award at the 1997 Venice Film Festival for the film "HANA-BI." In 1999 was awarded the title "Chevalier (Knight)" of the French "Ordre des Arts et des Lettres" (Order of Arts and Letters). Then in 2010 was given the title of "Commandeur (Commander)," the highest honor of the "Ordre des Arts et des Lettres."

In recent years has been very active in the art world. His exhibition "Takeshi Kitano, Gosse de peintre - 絵描き小僧" was displayed at the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain (Cartier Contemporary Art Foundation)" in 2010 and again at the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery (Tokyo, Hatsudai) in 2012. A painter, film director… His range of artistic endeavors continues to grow.
