Hiroshi Yamano

Hiroshi Yamano Biography

I, Hiroshi Yamano, think how I have changed over 50 years. I was a fish who always looked at far away places and kept moving. I did not look around near by and did not care about things near myself. I was just dreaming about far away places I had never been and did not know. I did not see how beautiful the nature surrounding me here was.
In each season, different flowers keep blooming beautifully, I now see the beautiful feminine nature in it. The birds are singing a beautifully around me. I feel what a wonderful thing it is, the nature around me.
I think Japan has so quiet and tender a nature, different than other countries. I would like to invite you to “ Scene of Japan”, when you look at my new works.
