Takeda, born in 1948 recently had a one man show at the British Museum. When you look through his work you sometimes find muted colors juxtaposed against brilliant color. His absurdist humor will make you smile and sometimes roll your eyes.
He IS a cartoonist but he is also a wonderful artist. The trick is his humor has no words, only the image. It is a tough thing to make people laugh or smile with just an image. A true skill.
