Although his subject matter is Japanese, his work has a very wide international appeal. His compositions have a slight suggestion of ukiyo-e prints, but to express contemporary influences he uses the figure dressed in Western style. The portraits are left ambiguous so that the viewer can add his or her interpretations.
Hiratsuka's work is included in many public collections, including The British Museum, Tokyo Central Museum, Cincinnati Art Museum, Fine Art Museum of San Francisco, Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts and Hallmark Cards, Inc.. He was also the featured artist at the 41st Annual CWAJ Print Show in Tokyo, the most prestigious show featuring contemporary Japanese prints.
