林武史/Takeshi Hayashi


Born in Gifu in 1956, Takeshi Hayashi graduated from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music with a Master’s degree in sculpture. He resided in Paris between 1998 and 1999 on an overseas research fellowship granted from the Ministry of Education. In 2012, Hayashi was awarded the Enku Award for Daichito Kyomei – Sozono Genfukei (Earth and Resonance – the Root of Creation), exhibited as part of the Sixth Enku Grand Award Exhibition. Hayashi currently lectures at the Tokyo University of the Arts. His artistic activity has involved taking stones of varying sizes and shapes and arranging them so as to express the relationships that exist between each stone and the space that surrounds them.
