Sunagawa No.5", oil on plywood painting by Hiroshi Nakamura, 1955
Hiroshi Nakamura(中村 宏,Nakamura Hiroshi?, born September 20, 1932 Shizuoka Prefecture) is a Japanese artist who has worked in 'reportage' and surrealist styles. Early works, like "Sunagawa No.5" (1955) and "The Base," (1957) critiqued the U.S. military presence in Japan. The protests represented in "Sunagawa No.5" were a response to the plane crash at Tachikawa Airfield in 1953 that killed 129 people. His later art took a more surrealist turn, with common motifs being high school girls and methods of locomotion, including planes and trains.
