Hideki Takahashi’s Cows are Hanging on 28th Street

NEW YORK—Last weekend, Hideki Takahashi put his cows out to pasture on West 28th street. Tokyo-born, Brooklyn-based Takahashi paints cows on denim with expert freehand strokes and gives his works celebrity and political-inspired names such as “Tom and Katie,” “Oba and Mich,” “Bill and Hillary,” “Fed and Interest” and “Paparazzi.” The installation, titled “Cows in the City,” appears behind a flower-lined fence between 10th and 11th avenues.

“Cows in the City” is sponsored by Ultima Gallery.
