Eric Nakamura is a Japanese American magazine publisher, gallerist, and entrepreneur. He is the co-founder of Giant Robot, owner of the Giant Robot store and GR2 Gallery, and curator of the Giant Robot Biennales and other museum exhibitions.
Nakamura attended UCLA, graduating in 1993 with a degree in East Asian Studies. In 1994, he and Martin Wong co-founded Giant Robot, which began as a self-published magazine and grew into a widely circulated bi-monthly magazine about Asian pop culture. In 2001, he opened the first Giant Robot store in Los Angeles. The magazine ceased publication in February 2011, but Nakamura continued publication through the curation of several Giant Robot Biennales at the Japanese American National Museum and the SuperAwesome: Art and Giant Robot exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California Art.
