Kala Art Institute and California Society of Printmakers are excited to co-host Internationally renouned printmaker Yuji Hiratuka’s lecture and studio demonstration at Kala Gallery on Saturday, October 27 at 1pm.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to learn first-hand Hiratsuka’s unique intaglio four color printing methodology from just one copper plate. The lecture will take place in the Kala Gallery.

Yuji Hiratsuka was born 1954 in Osaka, Japan. In 1985 he moved to the US, where he currently serves as a Professor of Printmaking at Oregon State University, Corvallis. Hiratsuka’s has been exhibited in the Americas, Europe and Asia. In the last four years he has had 14 solo shows in the US, several international solo shows and received numerous awards.

Although his artwork is representational, he deals with more metaphorical aspects in his work. Informed by traditional Japanese printmaking, Hiratsuka’s images add a sense of whimsy, satire and irony that relate closely to contemporary life and western sensibilities.
