Konishi Hirosada (c. 1819-1863) was the most prolific Osaka-based designer of ukiyo-e woodblock prints during the late Edo period.

Like most producers of kamigata-e-prints originating in the Osaka and Kyoto regions, he specialized in yakusha-e actor prints. Hirosada is particularly known for his diptychs and triptychs, and for his many ōkubi-e portraits of the leading actors on the Osaka kabuki stage during his day.

In the 1840s and 1850s he produced over eight hundred single sheet prints, "outnumbering by far" the output of any of his contemporaries. His prints are "among the finest and most individual of the whole ukiyo-e genre," and "among some of the finest character portraits produced anywhere in the world."
