Tadaaki Kuwayama and his wife, the artist Raku-ko Naito, arrived in New York in 1958. Leaving behind the traditions of Japanese nihonga painting, they became part of the cutting edge of the 1960s American art scene. A contemporary of Minimalists such as Dan Flavin, Walter De Maria, and Donald Judd, Kuwayama soon developed his own distinctive style, typified by vivid fields of paint juxtaposed in horizontal and vertical compositions, as well as monochromatic canvases bisected by thin strips of chrome. Following two solo exhibitions at the renowned Green Gallery in 1961 and 1962, his work was shown until to-day in many important galleries and museums throughout the world, not only in the USA, but also in Germany, Switzerland, Isreal, and – not to forget – in his home country, Japan.
