A RETROSPECTIVE Toshimitsu Imaï's Art

BACK

A Solo Exhibition of An Influential Japanese Artist

 

There are artists whose presence at certain moments in the history of art engender tectonic shifts. Toshimitsu Imaï 今井俊満 (1928-2002) Kyoto, Japan, was one, who not only achieved high acclaim as a painter dedicated to constantly bringing the new to the medium but also to changing the trajectory of avant-garde art movement in post-war Japan - by introducing Art Informel to his fellow Japanese artists and critics in the late 1950s.

 

A RETROSPECTIVE of Toshimitsu Imaï's Art is now on display at the PMQ Gallery exhibiting pieces of Imaï’s early days, characterised by an ‘ultra-complex structure’ using strong colours and heavy brushstrokes and the transcendence after the Informel to Ka-Cho-Fu-Getsu (flower, birds, wind, and moon) series, indicative of his gentle and romantic sensitivity.
