Below a brief interview with the artist and his daughter:
Abe was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1963.
Works by the artist can be found in the Hawaii State Art Museum and the Honolulu Museum of Art.
I find the work of Satoru Abe reminds me of Japanese printmaker Hajime Namiki. Both artists choose to represent trees in a majority of their work. Each tree seems to be similar in shape with little subtle changes. Both artists do a great job at tapering their tree limbs and branches.
