Born in Kariya City, Aichi Prefecture. After graduating from Kariya High School in 1951, moved to Tokyo. The “Bathroom” series which published in 1953, and the “Event of the shed” series in 1954 are said to be representative works of postwar Japanese art. Since 1965, he has been active mainly in New York. Since 1966, he has been working on “Date Painting” which draws numbers on the canvas. In addition, he developed works using postcards, maps, etc. that do not feel the craftsmanship of the artist, and is highly regarded internationally as a conceptual artist.
