Tetsuya Noda
Birth Date: 
Birth Place: 
Shiranui in Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu.
Born March 5, 1940 in township of Shiranui in Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu. 1963 graduated from Tokyo University of Art, won prizes in Japan Print Association exhibitions 1967 and 1968, won Grand Prix in Sixth International Biennial Exhibition of Prints, Tokyo. After training with first generation sosaku hanga artist Ono Tadashige, Noda won a grand prix at the Tokyo International Print Biennial at age 28. He went on to develop a highly individual mixed-media style, combining woodblock, screenprint, stencil, and hand additions. With scanners and xerography, Noda transfers photographic imagery that is distinctive in being personally generated rather than extracted from commericial sources. Nearly all his prints from the late 1960's onward bear the rubic Diary, followed by a date, an explicit indication that the imagery emerges directly from his own memory and experience. Volk, Alicia.
