Craig Nagasawa's work combines the technical aspects of Japanese/Nihonga painting techniques with the personal vision of a third-generation Japanese American.  A Bay Area resident for the last 32 years, his work is represented in private and public collections in the United States, Switzerland, and Japan.  He has been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions along the West Coat since 2004.  Craig teaches painting and drawing at the University of California, Berkeley, where he has taught for twenty years.  His classes incorporate ancient practices of Japanese painting with contemporary art practices in the United States.  He is also the Director of "Bridging the Arts," a program that teaches pedagogy of arts education to UC Berkeley students, bringing arts curriculums to K-12 public schools.
