Hiraku Suzuki


The painter Hiraku Suzuki’s work springs more from an excavation of things hidden in the here and now rather than depicting objects or ideas in a classical way. Widely acclaimed for his work, Mr. Suzuki has participated in major group exhibitions including at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, and in international exhibitions in France, Sweden, Australia, and Brazil. He is a 2001 graduate of Musashino Art University and earned his M.F.A. from Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music in 2008. He was featured alongside fellow 2011 ACC grantee, Enrico Isamu Oyama, in the Tokyo Street exhibition on urban Japanese street art in Singapore in early 2013.
