b. 1913 - 2007

Born in 1913 in Yamanashi, Japan, Hideo Hagiwara is a master of the Japanese contemporary woodblock printing technique and one of the best- known Japanese artists of the 20th century. He employs a broad variety of printmaking techniques including woodblock, lithograph, etching and stencil.

Hagiwara began making prints after World War II with figurative subjects and after 1958 he began making the abstract works for which he is mostly acclaimed. In 1983 he was awarded the “Purple Ribbon” by the Japanese government for his devotion to the development of the Japanese art. Hagiwara taught at the University of Oregon in 1967.
