In this clip a brief but intriguing interview with Tadaaki Kuwayama:
Kuwayama began his journey as a painter using mineral based pigments and the Nihango method of painting which emphasizes strong outlines and tones.
After moving to the United States he became influenced by movements of minimalism and abstraction. He also began using more geometric shapes in his work. He also began using color and metallic paints.
The artist paints with oils and acrylics.
Works by Kuwayama can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and the Museum of Modern Art located in Tokyo.
Tadaaki Kuwayama had a wide range of influences from the Eastern and Western worlds of art. Kuwayama found his artistic voice using bold colors and simple geometric shapes. Kuwayama’s color palette reminds me of American painter Ellsworth Kelly.
