Senkichiro NASAKA 1923-2014
 
  Senkichiro Nasaka was born in Osaka Prefecture in 1923, and in 1942,
  he entered Kyoto City Specialist School of Painting (now Kyoto City University
  of Arts), where he was a contemporary of Shiraga Kazuo. In 1950, his work
  was selected for the Exhibition of Kansai Sogo Bijutsu, and in 1952, he
  completed the Japanese painting course at Kyoto City Spacialist School of Arts.
  After changing his emphasis to Western-style painting in 1963, he first exhibited
  his work in the 15th Gutai Exhibition in 1965. He became a member of Gutai in
  the same year and exhibited with them continually after that. At the beginning of
  his affiliation with Gutai, he created works under the influence of the informel
  style, but he soon began to create the kind of art that characterized the later
  Gutai
works, a blending of art with technology. It can be said that he embodied the spirit
  of Gutai through his diverse concepts and production techniques such as
  hard-edge paintings, Kinetic art and light art.
  Some of his works are included in the collections of the Ashiya City Museum of Art
  and History and the Miyagi Museum of Art.
