Biographie de HASEGAWA Shoichi

Soichi Hasegawa is amongst the most famous contemporary Japanese artist.

The world known Japanese engraver and painter Shoichi Hasegawa, came to Paris in 1961 to deepen his knowledge of colour etching techniques and acquire a mastery which would award him the first prize of engraving at the International Exposition in Come, Italy in 1968. The number of his awards in the past two decades, come to top his exhibition in the USA, Africa, Europe and Japan. Both American and European Museums have enriched their collections with his painted and engraved works, as a hyphen between the oriental and occidental worlds. This dualism is mirrored throughout all his works where the firmness of his symbolic and secretive style plays with the colours and the transparent, harmonious halftones. The mystery and poetry which become apparent in his works, know to challenge time without tiring the eye.


Shoichi Hasegawa was born in Yaizu, Japan in 1929.

He studied painting in Tokyo.

His first personal painting exposition in Tokyo, took place in 1957

He came to Paris with his wife in 1961 to learn the technique of colour etching engraving at l’”Atelier 17” (S.W. Hayter).

In 1965, he won a prize at the international Engraving Exhibition in Ljubljana, and in 1968, the first prize of engraving at the International Exposition in Come. In 1972, he was awarded the International Prize of the exhibition “Third Civilization” in Tokyo.
