Kumi Sugai

KUMI SUGAI (1919–1996) was a Japanese painter and printmaker. He began his studies in Osaka and like many Asian painters of his generation, after World War II came to Paris and finished his studies, bowing to the Western artistic tradition. Initially he was drawn to abstract expressionism, minimalism and pop art, but in the sixties he turned to geometry, which he continued with for the rest of his life.

He exhibited at the most prestigious art fairs, such as the Venice Biennale, the Sao Paulo Biennial and the Documenta in Kassel, as well as at events in the USA and Japan, gaining international fame and reputation.
