Tsugio Hattori (1951 – August 10, 1998) was an American abstract painter.

Background and education[edit]

Tsugio Hattori was born in Kagoshima, Japan, in 1951. Hattori studied mechanical engineering and technical illustration[1] at Kagoshima National College of Technology in 1972. Afterwards, he went to Tokyo and attended Musashino Art University. He graduated from the Univ in 1980. Hattori continued his studies at The Art Students League of New York. Thinking of Oriental impression, he expressed the impression mixed the cultural background that he could remember with abstractly what kind of thing is the Oriental memory in the foreign country. Hattori's abstract forms are related to Chinese hieroglyph or the afterimage received from the style of type,[2] and have a nuance that composed those elements and some balances by his sense. His early works were oil paintings, but he used acrylic paints in U.S.A.

Life and work[edit]

He began a fourteen-year relationship with Reece Galleries Inc., New York, NY, from 1984. Hattori immigrated to the United States in 1987. His paintings are in the collections of Bergen Museum of Art & Science, NJ, Muscarelle Museum of Art, VA, and Museo de Arte Contemporanea, Madeira, Portugal, to name a few, and have appeared in television programs on ABC and Fox. A number of his images were selected by UNICEF for publication in Europe in 1995 and 1997. In 1997, The Bergen Museum held the first retrospective of his inspirational work. But on August 10 in 1998, he left a wife and two sons in the sleeping and died. He was 46 years old. At the time of his death Hattori resided in Tappan, NY, and was a dedicated faculty member at the Art Center of Northern New Jersey, teaching abstract painting and composition.
