Akira Hasegawa

As a video artist to get started, Akira Hasegawa had been producing over 4,000 TV-CMs including NHK news titles, program titles such as the Olympics, history dramas, China CCTV logo among other profound accomplishments. In 1995, his world's first attempt was made in projection mapping of his digital art onto a building. This pioneering attempt opened the door for the projection mapping today as the forerunner and his own and the new category of the digital ART called DK Digital Kakejiku - embodies the sole and the essence of the traditional Japanese art of the wall hanging scroll-yet slowly shifting through the time and the space.

Since then, DK were installed in Japan and across the globe including Greece at the Athens Olympics commemoration Acropolis, and many of the world famous locations in the US, China, Germany, Bulgaria among others. Akira Hasegawa was awarded as the best artist of American Public Art at the ZERO ONE SAN JOSE ART FESTIVAL in 2007. In 2010, he was invited to the Salzburg World Music Festival and his DK installation mesmerized the audiences into the Silent Symphony and was highly acclaimed among all including world top class musicians. In 2013, He was invited as the first ever Japanese artist at the Nobel Prize Night Cup banquet and installed his DK art over the hall through the cold night of snow.

Over the years, Akira Hasegawa has been installing his DK art onto more than 450 locations worldwide including hundreds of the Japanese Buddhist temples, castles, Shinto shrines including Ise Jingu, Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, Kasumigaseki Building for months, local caves and many of the World Heritages. His tireless efforts on DK worldwide keep on going into the future and never ends.
