MATSUTANI TAKESADA

Born in Osaka in 1937, Takesada Matsutani studied under Jiro Yoshihara in 1960 and participated in the 9th Gutai Art Exhibition. He began producing relief works in 1962 using vinyl adhesive and is highly praised by Yoshihara who invited him to be a member of the Gutai Art Association. In 1967, he joined the print studio of S.W. Hayter and won several prizes at international print exhibitions. During the 1980s, he began to produce works using graphite pencil and vinyl adhesive. In June 2019, he presented a solo exhibition at the Centre Georges Pompidou and his works can be found in many well-known art museums.
