Born in Yokohama in 1953, Shigeki Kuroda attended Tama Art University, graduating in 1976. In 1984, he continued his studies in printmaking in the U.S. through a fellowship from the Japanese government. Working in aquatint, mezzotint, drypoint and etching, Kuroda has a distinctive style marked by expert lines and subtle tones. His work has been exhibited worldwide and now resides in revered collections such as the Chicago Art Institute, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the British Museum.
Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind. - Louise Nevelson
