Hamada vs Hamada: An Interview with artist Hiroyuki Hamada by Jeff Hamada

Hiroyuki Hamada

I always get excited when I find an artist whose work I want to follow.  Hiroyuki is one of them.  Richard Gailbraith wrote an article: Japan:Creative – Introduction, on CEMENTUM in August 2012, in which he included a statement of Hiroyuki’s work.  I cannot say it better then him, that Hiroyuki’s work “oozed sci-fi whilst retaining an intrinsic ‘Japaneseness’ about it.  It connotes to me Zen gardens and the post apocalypse at the same time.”  Jeff Hamada, from Booooooom,  ‘randomly came across Hiroyuki Hamada’s work, following a link from Newstoday.’  He shares the same name but in terms of immediate family they are completely unrelated. After seeing his amazing work he thought it would be fun to contact Hiroyuki and see if he would allow him to interview him, I mean how could he say no to family?

Yayoi Kusama

Yayoi Kusama SELF POTRAIT WITH MIRROR

Yayoi Kusama ( born 1928, Matsumoto )

One of the largest contemporary artists in Japan.
Kusama is also enigmatic – critics have variously ascribed her work to minimalism, feminism, obsessivism, surrealism, art brut, pop, and abstract expressionism.
Because of fragile mental health, she voluntarily lives at a Tokyo psychiatric hospital, in a small room, for over 20 years.
