  • Yamaguchi Takeo


Yamaguchi Takeo is a pioneering abstract painter in postwar Japan. Since the early stage of his artistic career, Yamaguchi had devoted to the experiment of non-figurative painting, which gradually evolved a pure abstraction after the War. Yamaguchi’s work typically represents compositions of geometrical forms and colours, which proposed a different approach to the postwar Japanese abstraction during the ‘Informel whirlwind’. Yamaguchi’s works have been widely exhibited in and out of Japan, including the São Paulo Biennial and Venice Biennial.
