tokyo-based graphic designer and artist hideki inaba presents ‘VECTA’ by clark gallery + SHIFT at the cross hotel sapporo. the featured works comprise a series of colorful and complex vector line drawings, whose free form borders radiate energy and dynamism. swirling, looping, and swooshing shapes emerge from a seemingly infinite amount of thin lines. the delicate quality of the work is achieved through a combination of mediums — ink, printer and paper — referencing the ukiyo-e school of printmaking which depends on a relationship between the woodblock carver and their materials. the current exhibition, which begins in sapporo, suggests a expansion of creative direction for the artist and includes a new series ‘VECTA – NEWLINE’ and ‘VECTA – GRID’.  following its closure on november 3, 2013, the images will travel abroad to taiwan and shanghai.
