Based between Germany and Japan, Hirofumi Abe is a designer and artist working predominately in pattern. Made up of rolling eyeballs, pyramids, race tracks and colourful splodges Hirofumi manages to both abstract narratives and bring visual sense to non-linear ideas. Designing for concept stores, exhibitions, cinemas, restaurants and hair salons, he seems able to apply his ideas to almost anything.
Having only recently graduated, Hirofumi is already exhibiting in group exhibitions cataloguing Japanese graphic design with the curator of Gurafiku , a website archiving its history and at exhibitions in the USA.
