Ends in 26 days

Born in Kyoto to a family of Nihonga painters, Hiroshi Asada (1931–1997) studied Western-style painting at university and was originally influenced by Art Informel, but a move to Europe at the age of 39 and 11 years in Paris prompted his return to classical painting. He is best known for his paintings and prints demonstrating both photorealistic and fantastical elements, portraying “primeval landscapes” marked by water droplet and feather motifs and “primeval cityscapes” of beautiful ruins.

Asada held solo exhibitions in France, Germany, and Belgium. He repatriated in 1982 at the age of 50 and taught as a professor at Kyoto City University of Arts while producing his own work, but took his own life at 65. His numerous awards include the Cannes International Print Biennale Grand Prix, the Miyamoto Saburo Memorial Award, and a Kyoto City Person of Cultural Merit designation. This exhibition coinciding with the 20th anniversary of Asada’s death surveys his early career through his last works, presenting 140 oil paintings and prints.
