In 1985, Takayuki Matsumine was born in Shizukuishi in Iwate prefecture.
After coming abroad with Industrial Arts (Film Industry Arts) in Hollywood, LA in 2010,
he became a professional artist based in Morioka-city, Iwate prefecture.
His love and zealous sense were fostered from freestyle skiing since his childhood and a free expression of art. He was awakened to the possibility of art at the age of 25, this initiated a chemical reaction inside Takayuki. Wearing his first ski boots at the age of 4 and getting a commercial sponsor at the age of 16, he became a viable prospect as a great skier. However, his life turned completely when he injured his cervical spine from a falling accident, which left his arms and legs immobilized.
Even though he couldn’t move his limbs, his quest to find something to excite others, which he experienced the same passion whilst doing freestyle skiing, didn’t stop.
When he went to LA to study in 2010, he finally came across something that he had always been looking for. It was the world of Hollywood film art that finally he could link the same sense of performing freely and exciting others which he had from the freestyle skiing days. Takayuki relentlessly dislikes pity from others.
He realized that the world of art was the place for him to fight with others on the same stage and become the only one.
Since 2012, Takayuki’s artworks had started coming under the spotlight. He had opportunities to draw his extreme and explosive artworks and inner color of the image on portrait photos of Japanese famous musicians and athletes.
In 2015, Takayuki’s portrait documentary was produced by Red Bull Japan and a number of his portrait artworks have appeared on various occasions to make people’s heads turn.
A portrait artwork is just a prologue for his art career.
In 2016, Takayuki restarted his art career using oil painting, acrylic painting, digital arts, and multi media arts to find and show his unique art style like no other to the world and has been aiming to become the “real” only one in the art industry.
