Born on 1970, living in Shiga Prefecture, Japan.
Has been participating in “Atelier Yamanami” since 1988.
A set of points that appear to be an abstract pattern is numerous “faces.” Whether the base is paper or clay, Hideaki’s theme is always “faces.” It has been the case for 30 years.
Based on his own rule, he carefully pierces small holes with consistent intervals. If we ask him what they are, a clear-cut answer comes back. “Eye, eye, nose, mouth!”
The appearance of Hideaki who persistently pricks holes putting his face closely to paper and clay is part of the scenery of Atelier Yamanami.
