Influenced by conceptual minimalism, Atsushi Ohashi started his career as a sculptor with his first solo show in Tokyo in 1982.  He gradually shifted his artistic and philosophical interests to two-dimensional media and figurative oil painting.  He has concentrated on traditional oil painting since 2002, adopting people on the subway in New York City as his primary theme.  He had a solo show, titled " Waiting for the G Train," at the Williamsburg Library Gallery in 2007 and " Waiting for the L Train " at the Tenri Cultural Insititute of New York Gallery in 2014.

An artist and art educator, with more than 30 years of experience in New York and Tokyo, Ohashi's work has been published in art books and magazines in both the U.S. and Japan, including New York Art WorldArt in America, and Contemporary Artists in Japan.   In addition, he taught sculpture at the prestigious Tokyo National University of Fine Art and Music from 1989 to 1994,where he previously received his master’s degree. Currently, he teaches art classes and workshops to children throughout New York City.

Through my work, I hope to illustrate how the pure and extraordinary often comes from ordinary.
