Senju Hiroshi (painter)
Hiroshi Senju, a native of Japan, is a painter who expresses contemporary modernity with ancient painting techniques that are unique to Japan. He uses this dichotomy to express the connections between Eastern and Western Philosophical traditions.  He is the first Asian artist to receive an individual fine arts award at the Venice Biennale for his acclaimed Waterfall paintings in 1995. Some of his more recent exhibitions include Beauty Project at the Museum of Contemporary Art in London in 1996, and a tour of fourteen Japanese cities of his acclaimed Waterfall paintings. Museums that house his work include the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and the Toyama Museum of Contemporary Art in Kushiro, Japan.
