Kazuhiro Tsuji was born in Kyoto, Japan.

He started to paint and sculpt in childhood, expressing an early enthusiasm for art, painting, photography, nature, science and technology. Experimenting in various media, he discovered portraiture was his true passion.

In high school Kazuhiro worked with an array of film making techniques, focusing his career aspirations on Special Effects Makeup. This led to a correspondence with acknowledged master of makeup, Dick Smith. A long lasting friendship began when Smith invited Tsuji to work on the Japanese film “Sweet Home”.

In Japan Tsuji started his own company, working on numerous Japanese movies including “Rhapsody in August” directed by Akira Kurosawa. Tsuji also taught Special Effects Makeup at the private school.

In 1996 Tsuji was sponsored by Rick Baker to work on “Men In Black”. This prompted a decade-long collaboration with Baker.

Tsuji won a BAFTA award for “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” and was nominated for “Planet of the Apes”.  Tsuji also received Oscar nominations for “Click” and “Norbit”.

In 2007 Kazuhiro Tsuji started KTS Effects Inc in Los Angeles.

He is primarily focused on his work as a portrait artist creating fine art pieces while also collaborating with other imaginative artists. He has exhibited in several galleries and at solo shows with various organizations.

Tsuji Kazuhiro’s hyper realistic technique, learned while he was in the film industry, renders portraits that emit a profound sense of soul and emotion to viewers.
