Biography

Japanese sculptor Yoshioki Hasegawa graduated from the sculpture department of the Tokyo School of Fine Arts in 1915. At the 1920 Emperor Exhibition his sculpture Reikō (Divine Light) won him the first of numerous prizes at official exhibitions. In 1924, he created the monument for Admiral Prince Higashifushimi Yorihito, and in a competition in 1936 he was awarded the first prize for his Meian (Light and Dark), a relief of the empire education tower, which was located in a park in Osaka.

One of Yoshioki’s favorite subjects was the Japanese national sport Sumo. He submitted Enban'nage (Discus Throw) to the 1932 Olympic Arts Competition in Los Angeles and four years later four works to the art competition in Berlin, of which Ryoka Mae (Rikishi) (Two Figures (Wrestling)) achieved an Honorable Mention. Hasegawa was active in various art societies, notably for the Japanese Sculpture Association, the Japanese Society for Engraved Pottery and others. He received the Gongju Medal just weeks before he died at his home in Tokyo from pneumonia.
