Shindo is one of Japans leading textile artists and his work is well represented in international museums but this is the first time his work has been acquired by a British museum. His work with natural indigo represents a classic Japanese synthesis of traditional and contemporary. It also uses architectural space in a way that has become closely associated with Japanese textile art. The Whitworth has been developing a collection of contemporary textile art since 1990 and began to extend this into the international arena 2-3 years ago.
