Christian Hidaka (Noda, Japan 1977) studied Fine Art at Winchester School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools, London. He lives and works in London. Christian Hidaka investigates the language of figuration and the representation of the picture plane. His work attempts a synthesis of two reference points: on the one side Renaissance painting, influenced by Euclidian geometry and the structure of the frame; on the other the limitless development of space and absence of a vanishing point, which we find in ancient Chinese calligraphic landscapes or in digital space.
