MASAAKI NODA (Japan, Hiroshima b. 1949 / act: New York City)
Born in Hiroshima Perfecture in 1949, Masaaki Noda grew up and studied in Japan. In 1977, five yeas after graduating from Osaka University of Arts, Noda arrived in New York City, intent upon embarking on a career in art, in which he continues to distinguish himself.
In his art, Masaaki Noda constantly seeks to find new sources of inspiration and to render space and time afresh. His ideas are applied with equal facility in both 2 and 3-dimensions. Originally Noda engaged with painting. Owing to the fact that Noda painted a sculptural world, it was natural for him to shift from painting to sculpture. When he returned his skills in sculpture back to painting and graphics, his art was revived. Noda likes to shift amongst artforms and to learn from this shift. Painting being illusory, while sculpture being tangible, both media inform one another and orientate Noda’s artistic vision and aspiration.
Nowadays, Masaaki Noda is universally recognized as printmaker, painter, collagist, and sculptor. He is a member of the Society of American Graphic Artists, and Vice President of Audubon Artists in New York.
Masaaki Noda currently lives and works in New York City.
