Hiroshi Nakamura, born in 1932 in Shizouka Prefecture, is a Japanese artist who is known for his style that combines Social Realism and Surrealism. Nakamura graduated from Nihon Univeristy College of Art in 1955 and held his first solo exhibition at the Takemiya Gallery, Tokyo in 1956. Nakamura's early work was influenced by the American military occupation in Sagawa and the resulting conflicts between the townspeople and soldiers. His later works took a more surrealist turn, with common motifs being high school girls. Nakamura helped found both the Tourist Art Research Center in 1964 and the Bigakko Art School in 1967, where he taught oil painting. Since 1974, his work has been presented internationally.
