Born in Nagano Prefecture, Shigeo Arai (1920-) displayed an aptitude for drawing in childhood. After studying Yuzen (fabric dyeing) and Nihonga (Japanese-style painting) in Ueda, Nagano, Arai studied under Genichiro Inokuma. He thereafter relentlessly pursued new creative expression without regard for boundaries between Nihonga and Yoga (Western-style painting) or possessing a fixed style.
In every period of endeavor, Arai has explored his influences from Inokuma, such as skillfully manipulated bright colors, surprising combinations of media and motifs, and fresh perceptions of things encountered in daily life. As he has done so, the individual spirit he established has come to life.
This exhibition is an important opportunity to fully display Shigeo Arai's career of over 70 years in his "second home," Marugame.
