Hiroshi Suzuki (b.1961) has become a leading contemporary silver artist and in a short number of years after completing his MA at the Royal College of Art in 1999. Complex and unparalleled forms created by him from a flat sheet of metal have been highly admired by many museums and collectors in the world.
"I have developed an intuitive relationship with metal that allows me to approach my work in a highly spontaneous way. It also gives me a certain freedom to create something unique and remain true to the material. Intuition and feeling are core to my creative process, allowing me to maintain sensitivity with the material. The thematic influences in my work explore the subtleties within fluidity and sensuality, a very personal expression applied with an all-encompassing hand."
