As a close collaborator with Patrice Greanville, Editor-in-Chief at The Greanville Post(https://www.greanvillepost.com), he will often copy me on email correspondence with other writers. One string caught my immediate attention, since it was about Japan. This country being very central to China’s modern history, I immediately invited Joseph Essertier and Hiroyuki Hamada, the two Japan experts in the conversation, to interview with me on China Rising Radio Sinoland. Joseph joined me recently (http://chinarising.puntopress.com/2018/04/03/become-a-japan-expert-in-one-hour-with-joseph-essertier-on-china-rising-radio-sinoland-180402/ and https://www.greanvillepost.com/2018/04/15/become-a-japan-expert-in-one-hour-with-joseph-essertier-on-china-rising-radio-sinoland/). The response was huge, as I discovered that Japan fascinated many people, not just me.
Now, Hiroyuki Hamada has kindly agreed to join me in a written interview. He is an accomplished artist. I will let his website speak on his artistic behalf (www.hiroyukihamada.com). I encourage you to take a look at his portfolio, it’s quite impressive, but if you don’t make it there, here is his synopsis:
Hiroyuki Hamada (b. 1968, Tokyo) has exhibited throughout the United States and in Europe and is represented by Bookstein Projects. He has been awarded various residencies including those at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, the Edward F. Albee Foundation/William Flanagan Memorial Creative Person’s Center, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and the MacDowell Colony. Hamada’s work has been featured in various publications, including Stokstad and Cothren’s widely used art history text book Art: A Brief History (Pearson). In 1998 he was the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, and he has been a recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship twice, in 2009 and 2017. Hamada lives and works in East Hampton, New York.
