Born in Kanagawa prefecture in 1959, Hiromitsu graduated from Nihon University, Japan in 1981. His choice stencil technique is influenced by the ukiyo-e artists of the Edo period and that of Yoshitoshi Mori, a stencil print master artist.
Hiromitsu’s work captures colourful figures and stories of the Kabuki theatre.
Hiromitsu carves his image onto a waterproof stencil ‘paper’ and colour is applied through the stencil onto paper.
In 2023, his works were featured in ‘Kabuki Legends’ an exhibition presented at Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, UK.
