Tetsuo Harada

b. 1949, Niigata, Japan

Tetsuo Harada’s interest in materials and art began at a young age. Just as his name “Tetsuo” – ‘Philosopher’, would suggest, Tetsuo grew curious about music, art history, sculpture, painting, architecture, which led to his studies at Tamabi Fine Arts University under Tatehata Sensei.
In 1973, he traveled throughout Europe, before choosing to lay his roots in Paris. He studied at Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts de Paris, and cut his teeth at the atelier Colamarigny and later, worked under Jean Cardot.
Harada is well loved for his many notable public monuments, including the breathtaking, 120m-long ‘The Earth Weaving’ (1990) landscape sculpture which runs along the Tazawako dam. He has also received critical acclaim for his sculptural works exhibited across private collections, international galleries, museums and public spaces. Behind his every hand, is a ceaseless desire to unlock freedom of expression through each material. For this reason, no two sculptures are ever made the same.
