self portrait with his work
photo by Ken Kato

Born in Aichi prefecture, Japan, 1983.
Hicosaka creates a new landscape from pictures he took or found on Internet. Despite of imaging procedures like computer, silk screen and intaglio, his art making process remains original and intriguing.
He also applies various mediums onto the surface, which provides strong impression of different textures, especially in person.
