Artist Profiles

Tsuyoshi Hisakado
Born in Kyoto in 1981, Tsuyoshi Hisakado completed his M.F.A. at the Department of Sculpture, Kyoto City University of Arts in 2007. With an interest in the fundamental sensibility and uniqueness/eternity that constitute human activity, Hisakado creates conceptual works using a variety of methods and media, including sound, light, programming, sculpture, painting and large-scale installations. The artist hopes that his works resonate with the viewer's memories and imaginations, and sharpens their visual and auditory senses. In 2020, Hisakado held his first museum-scale solo exhibition at the Toyota Municipal Museum of Art, Japan. Hisakado was elected the East Asian Cultural Exchange Envoy and has been awarded the 'Mercedes-Benz Art Scope 2018-2020', the Audience Award at the 'NISSAN ART AWARD 2015', and the Grand Prize of the 'VOCA 2016 The Vision of Contemporary Art'. He has participated in various group exhibitions including the ‘Hawai‘i Triennial 2022 (Hawai’i, 2022)’, '58th Venice Biennale 2019: May You Live in Interesting Times" (Venice, 2019)', 'Asia Corridor Contemporary Art Exhibition (Kyoto, 2017)', 'AICHI TRIENNALE 2016 rainbow caravan' and has held solo exhibitions at 'MoCA Pavilion Special Project (Shanghai, 2016), Ota Fine Arts Singapore (2015) and Ota Fine Arts Tokyo (2018).
