Hiroko Sakai | Japan

Contemporary Japanese Artist in San Francisco. Hiroko Sakai is a Japanese artist, and has been living and working in San Francisco California since 1998. The intense passion that she conveys in her art has inspired deep expressions of emotion in viewers over the years. In the early 90's, her professional art career started in the graphic arts field in Japan. After graduating from Nihon interior design school with a BA degree in design and rendering, she founded "Atelier Yume-Tsumugi Ltd." Operating the studio successfully for 5 years, she emphasized working on a variety of projects with varying requirements rather than focusing on a distinct style. Many of her works there are displayed in a number of hospital lobbies, corporate offices, and commercial building entrances in Japan. In 1998, she broadened the scope of her endeavors to include projects in the United States.
