About The House Beyond the Wall

This artist's compositional dynamism stems from his use of strong diagonals corresponding with his emphasis on pictorial perspective.  This quality is further heightened by his use of black outlines, a red sky and a yellow ochre wall.

About the Artist

(1927-1999) 20th century Japanese artist producing graphically striking prints from the 1970's forward.

A native of Tokyo, Kawada studied with Serizawa Keisuke, a master of the katazome or stencil-dyeing process.  He graduated from the Ochanomizu Bunka Gakuin Art Institute in Tokyo.  Kawada exhibited widely and earning prizes for his bold designs, including the Grand Prize at the Nitten Exhibition in 1992.  The artist's solo exhibitions took place in France (1992) and in Tokyo (1996, 1998).

His pronounced approach to depicting traditional Japanese architecture and street scenes produces stark imagery with strong contrasting forms and color.
