Madalena Hashimoto

Born 1956 in São Paulo, Brazil; lives and works in São Paulo.

Madalena Hashimoto holds a master’s degree in engraving from Washington University and a PhD in philosophy from University of São Paulo (USP). She currently teaches undergraduate and post-graduate programs at the USP Center for Japanese Studies, translates literary texts, and researches erotic woodblock printing (shunga) from the Edo period. Hashimoto’s work, which has been exhibited in Brazil and the United States, incorporates Japanese techniques and materials—such as woodblock printing and washi paper and ink—as well as Western influences, reflecting her hybrid Nipo-Brazilian identity.
