Full bloomed Canola flowers and a seagul flying over vast sea. You may appriciate the contrast of fine each petal and the dynamic touches of the sea and sky.
Born in Hiroshima in 1959, Minoru Hirota’s formal studies culminated with a bachelor’s degree (1983) and master’s degree (1985) from Tokyo University of the Arts. Hirota’s characteristic style features the dynamic play of lines. Sometime sensuous, sometimes emotional, sometimes cutting, each brings to life the essence of his subjects. Through his desire to express intangible ideas through paintings of tangible subjects, the realism of Hirota’s unique artistic style stands out amongst his contemporaries. Today, he continues working on many subjects while further refining his techniques and exploring his abundant imagination.
