SUDA Yoshihiro

SUDA Yoshihiro completed his B.A. in graphic design at Tama Art University. As a self-taught wood sculptor he has continued to reproduce various flora by delicately carving thin petals, leaves, and tendrils from magnolia wood and hand-painting them. His installations presented in various locations both in Japan and overseas feature sculptures of flowers and plants so skillfully crafted they could be mistaken for the real thing, which in themselves serve to dramatically change the appearance of an entire space.
Major solo shows of his work have been held at Vangi Sculpture Garden Museum (Shizuoka, 2018), Yu-Hsiu Museum of Art (Nantou, Taiwan, 2017), Chiba City Museum of Art (2012), The Manggha Museum of Japanese Art and Technology (Krakow, Poland, 2011), The Contemporary Museum, Honolulu (Hawaii, 2009) , Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art (Kagawa, 2006), and "Three Individuals" at The National Museum of Art, Osaka (2006).
