|Message from MASAMI I
Masami Iida is an award-winning painter/photographer with a variety of interests that capture the beauty in our world. He was born just outside of Tokyo, Japan where he lived until he ventured to America to study. He attended universities in Iowa, Seattle, and New Jersey from 1982 – 1986. He received a Bachelor's degree from the Montclair State University with a major in linguistics and a minor in art. After a short return to Japan, Masami moved to Melbourne, Australia in 1987 and dedicated himself to painting.
Masami has over 20 years of painting experience and has captured the beauty of the human body, nature, landscapes and others on his canvas. Ten years and hundreds of painting later, in 1997 Masami took up photography and found it to be a natural extension of his artwork.
Masami enjoys capturing the essence of his subject through his lens and/or on canvas. He sees beauty everywhere, even in the simplest things.
Please take some time to view Masami's intimate photographs and paintings and see for yourself the beauty he has captured. Masami Iida's artwork can be found throughout North America, Europe, Russia, Japan, and Australia.
