Takao ONO

ONO was born in Iwate Prefecture in 1950 and left Japan for Italy in 1971. He studied at the National School of Art in Rome, Firenze School of Art, and Instituto Centrale di Restauro di Roma. Between 1977 and 1985 he traveled throughout Italy restoring church murals and museum collections.

ONO held his first solo exhibition at a contemporary art gallery in Ginza in 1976, then held exhibitions at G Ikeda Bijutsu (Ginza), Morioka Daiichi Gallery (Morioka), Gallery Toki-no-Wasuremono, and others. Later, he exhibited works in Shiseido Gallery's "Tsubakikai-ten". In 2008 Ito's Ikeda 20th Century Art Museum held the exhibition "Memories of an illustrated shadow - 30 years of Takao ONO exhibitions".
