Shinsaku Hamada

Represented by Pucker Gallery since 2008

BORN: 1929 in Mashiko, Japan
RESIDES: Mashiko, Japan

Shinsaku Hamada was born in 1929 in Tokyo, Japan as the second son of Shoji Hamada. A year later, the Hamada family moved to Mashiko in Tochigi Prefecture. Hamada studied industrial art at Waseda University in Tokyo and thereafter traveled with his father to assist him during demonstrations and lectures. The first Shinsaku Hamada solo exhibition was held at the Mitsukoshi Department Store in 1970, and he has since had numerous landmark exhibitions there, including a 2009 show to celebrate his 80th birthday. In 1978, Hamada became a Kokugakai National Art Association member and was named Director of the Mashiko Sankokan Museum. In 1999, he received the 27th Shimono Citizens Award. Hamada’s work is included in the collections of the Prefectural Governor’s residence and the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Hamada continues to exhibit internationally and work alongside his son, Tomoo Hamada, in the original compound built by his father.
