Biography Hodaka Yoshida
Hodaka Yoshida was a Japanese modernist artist who worked first in oils, and then from 1950 in the woodblock* print medium. From the beginning of his career, he broadened the range of styles and techniques used by Yoshida family artists.
His father and mother, Hiroshi Yoshida and Fujio Yoshida, were both leading Western-style artists in Tokyo in oils, watercolors, and from 1925 in shin-hanga* woodblock prints. Hodaka's older brother, Toshi Yoshida, became the heir to the Yoshida Studio and worked in both oils and woodblock prints. Hodaka was supposed to become a scientist, but as the Second World War ended, he defied his father's plans and became, not only an artist, but one who focused on abstraction, a style his father disdained.
