Toshimitsu Imai 今井俊満 (1928-2002)
Kyoto, Japan

There are artists whose presence at certain moments in the history of art engender tectonic shifts. Toshimitsu Imai was one, who not only achieved high acclaim as a painter dedicated to constantly bringing the new to the medium but also to changing the trajectory of avant-garde art movement in post-war Japan – by introducing Art Informel to his fellow Japanese artists and critics in the late 1950s. Imai’s early days were characterised by an ‘ultra-complex structure’ using strong colours and heavy brushstrokes. Transcending after the Informel to Ka-Cho-Fu-Getsu (flower, birds, wind, and moon) series, Imai expresses the beauties of nature indicative of his gentle and romantic sensitivity. In his final series Hiroshima, mai turned to a war-related series during the 90’s.

Toshimitsu Imai trained at the Tokyo Arts Academy. Imaï showcases a prominent array of art styles over his lifetime. Imaï’s early days are representative of Fauvism, characterised by strong colours and heavy brushstrokes. Receiving the Kansai-Shinseisaku Prize and then the prize of 15th Shinseisaku Salon, Imai makes his departure for Paris to study Medieval history and philosophy.
