Kiyoshi Saito 1907-1997
Kiyoshi Saito has been one of the best known modern Japanese artists in the Western world. He had started with a sign and billboard painting business before he went to Tokyo in the 1930s to study Western style painting.
In the late 1930s and the 1940s, Kiyoshi Saito began to work seriously in woodblock printing technique. His prime time came after world war II, when he won prizes at the International print exhibitions in Sao Paulo and Ljubljana. From the 1950s on, the artist exhibited and lived in the U.S.A. and in Europe.
Saito's works are remarkable with their well balanced, tight compositions and subdued colors in harmony. His works often evoke the Zen simplicity mixed with the modern, abstract designs.
