This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Gary Stanley, San Diego, CA

Hiroshi Tagami, late 20th Century, was born in Hawaii during the Depression years. He specializes in abstracts, landscapes, and still life works.

As one of twelve children, he had a Father who died at an early age. This forced him to spend a good deal of his youth working on Oahu plantations to help support his family during those lean times.

As a young adult Tagami enlisted in the military and served the United States during the Korean conflict. When returning home to Hawaii be began and operated a successful photography business for several years.

In 1964 he used his G.I. bill benefits to enroll at the Honolulu Academy of Arts. He began his professional art career at that time. He was the Founder and operator of the Botanical Gardens and Gallery on Oahu for several years. In 1998 he teamed up with Michael Powell, another Hawaiian artist to own and operate Tagami & Powell Fine Art Gallery on the Big Island, in Waimea, at the Kamuela Inn.

A prolific artist, using the palette knife technique, he has created over 6000 images over the years. His works are in public and private collections worldwide. His works are in the permanent collections of the AMFAC Corporation, Bank of Hawaii, State Foundation of Culture and the Arts (Hawaii), and the Walter Cecil Rawls Museum in Southhampton County, Virginia. Over the years he has instructed some of Hawaii's finest young artistic talent. 

A note from Fran Hildreth:
Mr. Tagami was a friend of my cousin, a resident of Southampton County, VA, and Tagami came to Virginia to visit him in, I believe, in the 1980's, painted local scenes there and many of his works are in the local museum.
