Biography

Japanese-born painter Hiroshi Senju is noted worldwide for his sublime waterfall and cliff images, which are often monumental in scale. He combines a minimalist visual language rooted in Abstract Expressionism with ancient painting techniques unique to Japan.

Senju is widely recognized as one of the few contemporary masters of the thousand-year-old nihonga style of painting, using pigments made from minerals, ground stone, shell and corals suspended in animal-hide glue. Evoking a deep sense of calm, his waterfalls, which he creates with incredible delicacy by pouring paint onto mulberry paper on board, conjure not only the appearance of rushing water, but its sound, smell and feel.

Hiroshi Senju was the first Asian artist to receive an Honorable Mention Award at the Venice Biennale (1995), and has participated in numerous exhibitions including the Beauty Project in 1996 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, London; The New Way of Tea, curated by Alexandra Munroe, at the Japan Society and the Asia Society in New York in 2002; Paintings on Fusuma at the Tokyo National Museum in 2003; and Frontiers Reimagined, a Collateral Event of the Venice Biennale curated and organized by Sundaram Tagore, in 2015.  In 2017, he was awarded the Foreign Minister’s Commendation from the Japanese government for contributions to art and in the same year, he was honored with the Isamu Noguchi Award.


Public installations include seventy-seven murals at Jukoin, a sub-temple of Daitokuji, a Zen Buddhist temple in Japan, and a large waterfall at Haneda Airport International Passenger Terminal in Tokyo. The Benesse Art Site of Naoshima Island also houses two large-scale installations.

Senju’s work is in The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Brooklyn Museum, New York; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri; the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto; the Museum of Modern Art, Toyama, Japan; the Yamatane Museum of Art, Tokyo; Tokyo University of the Arts; and the Kushiro Art Museum, Hokkaido. The Hiroshi Senju Museum Karuizawa in Japan opened in 2011.

世界上最遠的距離,不是生與死的距離,而是我站在你面前,你不知道我愛你.....世界上最遙遠的距離,是魚與飛鳥的距離,一個在天,一個卻深潛海底。

想想,不管是不是泰戈爾(Rabindranath Tagore) 譜寫了《世界上最遠的距離》,開頭的選段記載了情侶間的愛情,慢慢接近,慢慢遠離,生成了優美的距離。優美的距離,不止歸屬於愛情、人文藝術的世界裏,不止一次地承載和釋懷各名族文化間幽美而又遙遠的距離。因為遠離,我們彼此仰慕,慢慢接近,學習與自身文化不同的世界和人情。

泰戈爾後人 「藝術是歷史解碼器」 October 2013

「當我們大為謙卑的時候,便是我們最接近偉大的時候。(We come nearest to the great when we are great in humility)」這是曾獲諾貝爾文學獎的印度大文豪泰戈爾(Rabindranath Tagore)讓人耳熟能詳的名句。他周遊列國,與徐悲鴻、譚雲山為友,對促進東西文化最落力,描寫也最為細膩,甚至影響中國一代詩風。個半世紀後,泰戈爾對文化融通的深層視野仍然像基因遺傳在第五代子孫 Sundaram Tagore 的血液裏。「當我曾曾祖父拿到諾貝爾文學獎後,把獎金都捐到大學去,他深信人道主義(humanity)而非民族主義(nationalism)會令世界變好。我也深受影響,藝術不是商品也不只講求美輪美奐,最重要是有沒有達到歷史解碼的功能。」Sundaram Tagore這印度大文豪之後如是說。他更侃侃而談「文化衝擊」作為自己收藏和經營事業的單一準則與品味。

And Finally, after being interested in the sky, I discovered the waterfall. I felt something clicking as if I recognized some kind of DNA that I had in me, like a past memory. I find that a lot of people whether they are Europeans, Americans or Japanese have similar feelings towards waterfalls. I find that these emotions go beyond the boundaries East/West, or old/new. Once I understood what art was all about and that art should go beyond people's boundaries, it was very important for me to further explore that path.

"I started painting by brush," Senju says.

The more I painted the more I felt to the two most important elements on the earth - gravity and water. And I thought: why don't I try to use gravity, to pour down the paint from the top?"
