Senkichiro Nasaka — Gutai Group
Senkichiro Nasaka (Japanese, 1923–2014) “After studying art colleges, Senkichiro Nasaka enters the Kyoto City Painting University: encounters Kazuo Shiraga who is in the same class. Nasaka makes a career switch from Japanese painting to Oil painting in 1960s. It is until in 1965 that Nasaka presents his work to the 15th Gutai Art Echibition and becomes member of Gutai Art Association subsequently. During his Gutai period, there is a great change in the style from tableaux works influenced by Art Informel to hardedge imagery such as light art and kinetic art, which becomes representative style of the later Gutai.
