Originally from Miabara, Japan, Hiro Yamagata has achieved amazing success world wide for his contemporary art. He began his artistic studies in 1972 at L’ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Upon completing his education, he had his first European tour throughout Austria, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Germany.
In 1978 Hiro moved to Los Angeles, California. He then toured the U.S. for 7 years. After spending 12 years achieving commercial success with his paintings, Yamagata has completely changed his style.
Today, he’s known for his laser-light installations. He works and resides in Malibu, California. His studio, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, is an art laboratory where he combines art and science to push the boundaries of art.
Although he’s moved on, his serigraphs remain highly collectable.
