Kenji Kusaka was born in Tsuyama, Okayama prefecture. He uses the traditional woodblock printing technique for his bold compositions. In the 1960s he established for himself an international reputation by exhibiting in several of the Print Biennials in Tokyo, Lubjlana, Sao Paulo Florence and Xylon and winning important awards..
Kusaka's art prints are characterized by usually abstract or semi-abstract forms in bold colors with strong hues and intensive use of perspective and gradation. Thus he achieves the effect of "deep space". Favorite elements used by the artist are egg shapes and shapes that look like clouds.
