Following graduation from Tama Art University in 1961, Hamada became acquainted with the great avant-garde artists of post-war Japan, such as Yoshishige Saito, and began pursuing abstract modes of expression. He was awarded an Honourable Mention at the Osaka Biennale of Prints Competition of 1977 and, with much acclaim, has been active in various domestic and international exhibitions. In 2015, his solo exhibition, The Legacy of Kiyoshi Hamada – Paintings of Layering and Erasing, was held at the Nerima Art Museum. Hamada's works have shown and developed great promise over the years, and his works have been acquired by various museums, such as the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (Japan), Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (Japan), Artizon Museum (Tokyo, Japan) and the Kraków Museum of Art (Poland).Read More
