San Diego Art Prize-winning artist
Shinpei Takeda is an exceptional influencer based in Tijuana, Mexico. While his astounding creations such as “Beta Decay” may seem abstract upon first glance, they are drenched in profound symbolism. Constantly transitioning between four separate cultures, Takeda’s lifestyle sets him apart from his peers and allows him to have a perspective that is both remarkably broad and intimate all at once. In addition to creating unparalleled art installations and films, Takeda stretches his passion deeper through The AjA Project, a nonprofit he founded in order to improve the lives of refugee and immigrant children through photography.
