Since its opening in 2007, Cross Hotel Sapporo has been giving a series of art exhibitions of the “ART X (cross)”. From 2011, the ART X features the Hokkaido-based artists in collaboration with SHIFT. Started his career as a graphic designer in the late 90′s, Hideki Inaba gained highest attention for his innovative graphic works. His first solo exhibition “NEWLINE” was held in 2004. After that, he participated in the exhibitions inside and outside Japan. He has been creating graphic works for Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo. Now he is creating his new works based in his studios in Tokyo and Sapporo.

The title of the exhibition this time is “VECTA”. Named with the meaning of “hope” that the exhibition will be an attempt in suggesting a “new” direction. The new series also includes his previous work, “VECTA – NEWLINE” and “VECTA – GRID”.
