Born and raised in Niseko area, much of Hasegawa’s art is full of colour. For the 2015 Cow Parade, a charity art event held in Niseko, Hasegawa artfully covered a cow statue in countless colourful beads. He used almost 30,000 beads and was one of his masterpieces. Although he uses different materials for different art projects, there is always a range of colours.
In recent years, he has noticed the region has been dramatically globalising. For him, this situation is like seeing many different colours together. People from all over the world, from different races and cultures, bringing their own unique colours. These colours might not blend together well, but they represent their own colour individually. This phenomenon is creating a beautiful design that he thinks is like an art. “Life In Colour” mainly exhibits canvas work from 2018.
