Tetsuya Noda: life and works

By Gwylym Owen

Tetsuya Noda (野田 哲也, Noda Tetsuya, born 5 March 1940) is a contemporary artist, printmaker and educator. He is widely considered to be Japan’s most important lively print-artist, and one of the most well-off contemporary print artists in the world. He is a professor emeritus of the Tokyo University of the Arts. Noda is most renowned for his visual autobiographical works done as a series of woodblock, print, and silkscreened diary entries that seize moments in daily life. His objector method of printmaking involves photographs scanned through a mimeograph robot and next printed the images higher than the area previously printed by usual woodblock print techniques onto the Japanese paper. Although this mixed-media technique is quite prosaic today, Noda was the first artiste to initiate this breakthrough. Noda is the nephew of Hideo Noda an oil painter and muralist.
