Hideyo Okamura is an abstract artist living in North Adams, MA.
By employing repetition, overlays and transparencies the artist pushes viewers to look more closely and to be an active part of the experience of viewing. Each piece has no beginning or end similar to the way the sky or the ocean has no starting or ending point.
Okamura was born in Japan and has lived his adult life in the United States. “Abstraction is liberating, it crosses all cultural barriers and is exhilarating in its freedom of interpretation no matter where you are from or what your life experience might be.”
