About Hiroshi SugimotoView Profile »
Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japanese, b. 1948) finds inspiration in the Surrealist and Dada movements. Sugimoto received his BFA in Fine Arts from The Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, California in 1974. Sugimoto’s aim is to convey and preserve a point in time through his highly technical photographs, an intention to which he consistently refers in his ongoing series, including “Dioramas” (1976-), “Theaters” (1978-), “Seascapes“ (1980-), as well as his series “Portraits” (1999). Sugimoto is also largely compelled by architecture, as is evinced by his commision from the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago’s to produce a series of large-format photographs of significant buildings from around the world. Additionally, he has worked with architects to execute various visions, including a Shinto shrine for the Naoshima Contemporary Art Center in Japan. In 2009, his photograph “Boden Sea, Uttwil” (1993) was selected by U2 to be the cover for their album, No Line on the Horizon.Interested in consigning works by Hiroshi Sugimoto? Learn more »
