ARTIST'S INTRODUCTION / STATEMENT
Tatsuya Hirata is one of the featured artists in this exhibition. Born in Hokkaido in 1961, Hirata dropped out of Kanazawa College of Art majoring in oil painting to travel to Spain in 1983-84. Later in 1991-93, he studied under William Kisella in Piacenza, Italy. His talent was recognized when he received the Excellence Award at the 17th Shigeru Aoki Memorial Grand Prize Exhibition in 2008.
At ART FOR THOUGHT, we are thrilled to showcase new works by Hirata for this exhibition. His works are known for being gentle, warm, and full of humor, and we invite you to enjoy his unique world view at our gallery.
