Tetsuya Noda(野田 哲也) (born 5 March 1940) is a contemporary artist, printmaker and educator. He is widely considered to be Japan’s most important living print-artist.  He is a professor emeritus of the Tokyo University of the Arts. Noda is most well-known for his visual autobiographical works done as a series of woodblock, print, and silkscreened diary entries that capture moments in daily life. His innovative method of printmaking involves photographs scanned through a mimeograph machine and then printed using traditional woodblock techniques on a wood-engraving background. Although this mixed-media technique is quite prosaic today, Noda was the first artist to initiate this breakthrough. Noda is the nephew of Hideo Noda an oil painter and muralist.

In the British Museum Magazine, Timothy Clark, the keeper of Japanese section wrote “In nearly fifty years, Noda has created some 500 further works that continue his mesmerizing ‘Diary’ series, using the unique combination of color woodblock and photo-based silkscreen onto handmade Japanese paper that he has made his own. Personal snapshots are rigorously reworked to become subtle mementos of universal significance: ‘what’s in a life?’ we are constantly prompted to ask.”
In the video entitled "Making Beauty: Noda Tetsuya", published by The British Museum on October 11 2018, Noda and Clark discuss the concept and technique used in achieving the look and feel of the Noda's works. Video on YouTube
Since 1968, Noda’s works have been inspired by themes of his own life. It is a visual autobiography and the motif is a comment on his daily life - his family, people he knows, his children’s growth and scenery along his way. He takes photographs of what he sees and likes, then develops and retouches them with pencil or brushes. His works are done using materials close at hand.
On the concept of visual autobiography, Robert Flynn Johnson stated, "To think that one's life is important enough to make it the focus of one's art can be an act of pure folly and egotistical pride or it can involve a humbling and sincere self-examination that draw on observation of small universal truths. It is clear that in a career of nearly forty years of creating an artistic world made at paper and ink, Tetsuya Noda has followed the latter, quieter path."
In the age of social media, some critics are quick to see the parallelism of Noda's visual autobiography and popular social media sites. In 2016, a newspaper pointed out "In this era of social networking, it isn’t unusual for our friends to frequently post photos of the mundane happenings of our lives—a laughing baby, a just-read book, our lunch, a selfie—on Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat. But for renowned contemporary Japanese artist Tetsuya Noda, documenting the ordinary details of his daily life is something he has done for almost 50 years."
When asked about how he found his theme; “Diary as an opportunity”, he replied, “at the university I was not at all satisfied with the assignment of painting nudes, it did not seem the right way to express myself.” His independent thinking and determination were highly rewarded. “I started to use a mimeograph cutting machine for the photo images in addition to the woodblock printmaking techniques.” In 1968, four years after he graduated from the university, he received the International Grand Prize at the 6th Tokyo International Print Biennale; “for the audacious combination of photography with traditional woodblock print."
Noda’s techniques combine woodblock and mimeographed silkscreen printmaking methods based on traditional woodblock print making techniques that use water colors. As in the case of Ukiyo-e, printmaking a key-block is used to define the main image and is printed first, the colors are then applied with color blocks using registration marks. This is possible because the watercolors are transparent. Noda uses the photo-image in the place of the key-block. The mimeographed photo images are applied in the last stage after having printed the colored areas with woodblocks.
On the use of photographs, Noda concluded the difference between his approach to photography and that of the Pop artist, "Andy Warhol used photographs of Marilyn Monroe and Jacqueline Onassis (then Kennedy), but notice that the subjects are famous people, and the photographs themselves had already appeared dozens of times in the mass media. I never use photos taken by other people. My photos are all my own." Japanese art critic Yoshiaki Tono (one of the “three greats” of Japanese art criticism) pointed out that "Where the Pop artists are concerned with America, with the iconography of a particular age and culture, with anonymous colloquialisms, Noda deals with something much more personal. His main subject is ordinariness - the ordinariness of individual people. Warhol's "Jackie" is the face of a whole period in American life. Imposed on it is an image of Americana during the convulsive sixties. Noda's 1968 prints are of a different dimension."
As an educator, April Vollmer, artist and author of "Japanese Woodblock Print Workshop: A Modern Guide to the Ancient Art of Mokuhanga" wrote, "Today most art training takes place in universities, and two prominent Japanese artists—Tetsuya Noda at Tokyo University of the Arts (Tokyo Geijutsu Daigaku) and Akira Kurosaki at Kyoto Seika University—are largely responsible for the new international wave of Mokuhanga (Woodblock printing in Japan) awareness. Noda headed the woodblock department at Tokyo Geidai from 1991 until his retirement in 2007. Cultural exchange and the promotion of Japanese art forms are both part of the university’s mission, and Noda spearheaded an innovative program in which traditional Ukiyo-e master printers came each year from the Adachi Institute to work with students, providing a link between the traditional workshop system and the modern university. He also nurtured contacts with the West, and his 2004 retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Asian Art clearly showed the influence of his study of Western art, combining Mokuhanga backgrounds photo-screenprinted scenes of everyday life. In 1998 Noda came to Columbia University’s LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies to teach mokuhanga to New York area printmakers. Many of the artists now teaching mokuhanga internationally studied with Noda, including Seiichiro Miida (who has now taken Noda’s place at Tokyo Geidai), Raita Miyadera (also at Tokyo Geidai), Michael Schneider (Austria), Tyler Starr (US), Roslyn Kean (Australia), and others from Turkey to Korea to Pakistan."
Lawrence Smith, formerly Keeper of Japanese Antiquities at The British Museum wrote, "He is a master in at least four artistic genres , all of them closely related to painting. If considered as a printmaker, no Japanese can remotely equal his range of subject… Noda is unquestionably the greatest Japanese printmaker alive. But if considered as a creator of work very close to painting, one has also to ask what living Japanese could be considered his equal… but in my view not one of them can rival his remarkable range of subjects and emotions".
Edward Lucie-Smith, English art critic, curator and broadcaster, on “Japanese artists who have built major international careers”, and in the context of Yayoi Kusama’s “distinctively Japanese extension of the Pop sensibility”, and Takashi Murakami’s “traditionally Japanese origins of their imagery”, situated between them is, “Another well-known Japanese artist who stresses the international, cross-cultural aspect of his work is Tetsuya Noda. Noda’s visual diaries tell the story of his mixed marriage to an Israeli woman, using photo-based imagery. the most obviously Japanese thing about them is their immaculately skillful use of print-making techniques.”
Daniel Bell talking about the originality of Noda's prints says, "Noda's distinctiveness lies in three things: the remarkably consistent subject matter of his work, the structure and configurations of his compositions, and the novel techniques, consciously derived from Ukiyo-e, as the means of realizing his intentions."
The curator in charge of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco Robert Flynn Johnson wrote, “it is Tetsuya Noda who stands as the most original, innovative, and thought-provoking Japanese printmaker of his era".
Steven Co, art collector wrote, "Tetsuya Noda’s Diary Series is a visual map of temporal, personal, experiential, and lyrical moments. Noda strives to preserve memory with the objectivity of his camera, but then disrupts the resulting photograph with the subjectivity of his pencils and brushes before committing the memory to a print. As if to ensure that a memory is engraved into his mind, he would repeatedly retreat to that memory with rigor and vigor by personally pulling each print by hand. The result and effect are quiet and understated accounts of memories revisited, reassessed, and repeatedly asserted through this labor-intensive process. Mr. Noda’s works are as much about the process of making them as the pleasingly introspective and sensitive result of a single work or his whole body of works".
Yusuke Nakahara, art critic (one of the “three greats” of Japanese art criticism), wrote on Tetsuya Noda's use of photograph in his works, "Noda has succeeded in capturing the unique quality that had been captured in any other photographic art work before which could only be seen through a camera. This is the special quality that Noda possesses that others have difficulty to realize in their work. That is the recollective quality that a photograph evokes which one must say gives a photograph its unique quality. This recollected quality is none other than the ability that a photograph has, to record an event, that brings out the human emotion, and in Noda's works I feel that these feelings are strongly expressed."
When writing on the relationship of Japanese visual arts and Japanese cinema, Professor Linda C. Ehrlich stressed not to overlook the influence of the more contemporary “creative print” (sōsaku-hanga) on Japanese films that feature a formalistic playfulness and daringness. Ehrlich stated that, “Noda Tetsuya’s large-scale diary pages based on family photographs, with their seemingly mundane, yet resonant, themes.” invokes J. Thomas Rimer’s view on sōsaku-hanga’s sense of “muted realism” and “a sense of craft rooted in instinctive apprehension of the power, the wholeness, of nature itself.” And it is this sense of “muted realism,” in which “the wholeness of nature and the everyday are joyfully celebrated.”
Alan G. Artner, art critic, wrote "Many of the gratifications here come from the craft that late 20th Century art tended to downplay. The artist looks to have been unmoved by any fad or fashion and unashamedly demonstrates again and again how much work really goes into a work of art. If his exploration of friends and family does not hold your interest, the personal way in which he sets everything down may very well, as it shows a powerful melding of tradition and individual talent. Everything he sees is firm and solid and viewed with winning appreciation."
Tetsuya Noda's works are widely collected around the world by both generalist museums (national museums, fine art museums, modern art museum and contemporary art museums) and specialist museums (photography, print and graphic art).

In popular culture
- Noda's work "Diary: Perhaps Sept. 15th last year" appeared as an ad for Xerox's "Men & Civilization" (人間と文明) campaign in 1970.
- Noda appeared in an ad for the motorcycle model called Bobby for the Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.'s in 1976.
- Zooming in Togliattigrad, an Italian indie band, in their self-titled EP (2015), included a track entitled Tetsuya Noda. The inspiration came when the members (Carlo Maria Toller, Andrea Marazzi and Lorenzo Firmi) saw Noda’s retrospective show at The British Museum. On same EP, the band uses one of Noda's work entitled, "Diary: Sept. 1st '74" for its cover. In 2016, the band was invited to provide a soundtrack to accompany the exhibit The Diary of Tetsuya Noda. The track entitled The Diary of Tetsuya Noda runs 52:49 minutes.
