Kazuki Takizawa is a Japanese glass artist working in Los Angeles, California. The exhibition will consist of a large-scale metal and glass tree sculpture and a series of pedestal size blown glass sculptures.  Takizawa has been making work in glass that is related to issues of mental health and therapy. “Through my work, I express about these imperceptible disorders of the brain in a way that people can better visualize and understand. As an artist who was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, I feel the need to speak about my condition in hopes to alleviate some of the stigma associated with mental disorder.”

Kazuki has created a seven foot tall glass and metal tree sculpture that he hopes will increase awareness about suicide. In addition to the tree sculpture, the artist will exhibit a series of blown glass sculptures, which come from his “Minimalist Series.”

“Through this exhibition, I hope to bring awareness and shed light on these topics that are still considered taboo in many cultures today. Mental health affects everyone, and I am confident that this exhibition will be relatable to a variety of audiences.”
