1930 born in Tokyo, japan. Started his career from still life works. captured the only existing reality thing and projected on plane, represented its existence in three-dimension. However, from around 1956, focused his consciousness on canvas as a thing, lines on the canvas, surfaces and colors, also focus on flatness which is a fundamental reality of the painting, and the problem consciousness in creations of its space, filled the screen with irregular abstract pattern, draw pieces that covers the canvas with a repetition of square or rectangular. He shifted his style around 1965, separating white image by narrow cross patterns and created works comprised of achromatic color such as white, grey or silver. He explored another series of works using grid patterns since 1975. He changed his style of painting many times, however, his pursuit for the flatness of paintings can be found consistently. Later he started to create stripe paintings as "work" series, dissolving paintings with stripes, the lines of which are surfaces, colors, parts are wholeness, he constructed painting as itself on the two dimensions as essence of painting. He held Retrospective exhibition at Fuchu Art Museum in 2005. Died in 2010 when he was 83 years old.
