Takashi Shallow (he/they) signifies imagined and real hierarchies that he presents through found objects and social engagement. Shallow completed a BA in Fashion Design at Dominican University then an MFA at the University of Chicago where his experience as a teaching assistant for Theaster Gates inspired new trajectories for Shallow’s material gathering process. Previously a tailor and acrobatics coach, he now teaches art and music at Purdue University Northwest and is a board member of the Chicago Japanese American Historical Society. Dazed Digital includes Shallow in the article 10 of the best Chicago artists right now and The Arts Club of Chicago has named him a Visual Arts Fellow.
