1942 – 1998

Matsuda joines Gutai Art Association in 1967 as the youngest hope, where he acts one of the main members of group’s second generation. The artist is counted as a pioneer of kinetic art, which is quite rare in Japan at that time. Simple coloring and shaping centering on monotone embodies intellectual but still magical peace and elegance. Mechanical sound created by implements like motor makes the viewers feel rhythmical undulation and his works seems to predict the era of technology towards the next few decades. In 1984, Matsuda opens his private art school Bunsei Dojo Gallery Do in Namba (Osaka) and contributes to expand a wide range of educational activities.
