Since 1988, the Praemium Imperiale has become a strong voice for the importance of the arts in the modern world, recognizing outstanding achievements similar to the Nobel Prize in Sciences and Literature.

"I feel very honored to be given this distinction because I have always felt close to Japan and respect Japanese culture" said Salgado, a Japanese official. "As Brazilian, I can say that Japan matters a lot to us."

"I'm grateful for the Praemium Imperiale and feel its international reputation is deserved and enhanced by its previous recipients," said James Turrell. "It is an essential part of Japan's role in creating an international culture."

"The Praemium lmperiale is a great cultural gift, internationally," said Glenn Murcutt. "Being a 2021 recipient surprised me; it's just wonderful for me, but especially for the profession of Architecture in Australia. Even at 85, such an award encourages me to continue working for as long as I can."

Yo-Yo Ma said I'm deeply honored to receive the Praemium Imperiale. "I have tried to live not seeking honor but to do my best to survive honorably, so to receive this unexpected honor is very embarrassing. I can only accept thanks to those who made me, helped form me and helped me on a journey of discovery and exploration. I'm deeply grateful to them."
