Hiroyuki Hamada has exhibited widely in gallery and non-commercial settings alike. He is represented by Bookstein Projects. Exhibition highlights include shows at Gana Art Bogwang (Seoul, South Korea), The Arts Center at Duck Creek, Guild Hall of East Hampton, Bookstein Projects, The List Gallery (Swarthmore College), Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, and O.K. Harris Works of Art, where he began his solo exhibition career with wall hanging sculptures. Hamada’s studio practice includes sculpture, painting, and Piezography prints; his visual language and explorations in search of sharing essential qualities of experience have developed moving amongst these mediums.
Hamada holds an MFA from the University of Maryland. Over the years, he has attended various residencies including those at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, Edward F. Albee Foundation/William Flanagan Memorial Creative Person’s Center, Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and MacDowell. In 2020, he was awarded the Pollock Krasner Mid-Career Residency at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center.
Hamada has been the recipient of a Pollock Krasner Foundation grant and twice received New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships in sculpture. In 2018, he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. Hamada’s work has been featured in various publications, including Stokstad and Cotheren’s art history textbook Art: A Brief History (Pearson). He lives and works in the east end of Long Island with his family.
