A painter who became a pioneer of Japanese avant-garde art. After graduating from Waseda junior high school, he returned to Tokyo to return to Tokyo Art School, and graduated from "Nude Body Beauty", which denies the trend of the art platform at that time. After graduating, he explored paintings as Japanese while continuing to confront Europe's figurative thinking from Forbism to Cubism, turning to grasping a new frontier through southern painting research and penetrating an anti-academic position, but for tuberculosis I fell at the age of 42. Production that preceded Western European art thought was finally evaluated after more than 50 years after his death.
