Hiroshi Shimazaki

Purple Banner #

Educated in political science, economics, and cultural geography in Japan and Canada, geographer artist Shimazaki is Professor Emeritus, University of Lethbridge, Alberta. His love of painting developed in tandem with his academic interests. Landscape sketching, a traditional research tool employed in geographical enquiry, serves him well as a convenient and effective means to record his observations. Over the years he has honed his artistic skills and has developed many of these sketches into watercolour paintings. An elected member of Societàdelle Belle Arti CircolodegliArtisti di Firenze, Italy and the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour, he has published seven art books and exhibited in 12 countries. A sampling of his watercolours can be viewed at his home gallery in Halfmoon Bay.
