Born in Kyoto in 1980, Yuhi Hasegawa moved to New York to pursue a Master’s degree in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts. After completing his studies, Yuhi stayed in Brooklyn where he currently lives and works. His paintings mix elements of primal and contemporary culture and rituals; there is both an instinctive, intuitive quality in his paintings, and also a deliberate confidence.
