OSAKA (TAKATSUKI) STREET ART: “HANIWA” by DAAS

Artist’s statement: “For the Takatsuki mural: Takatsuki Art Expo asked me to create a mural design which would highlight some aspect of the city. I did some research and found that there was a large amount of these “Haniwa” (terra-cotta buried statues) found there. They have a large museum in the city dedicated to this and actually have a number of excavated artifacts. Anyway, I took this idea and decided to do a mural that depicted the history of Takatsuki. The mural has a Haniwa female sitting on a Haniwa horse in front of a Haniwa house.”
