Japanese, 20th century, male.
Active in France since 1967.
Born 1945, in Morioka (Iwate Prefecture).
Isao Utsumiya graduated from Musashino Fine Arts University, near Tokyo, in 1967, and moved to France, where he has lived ever since. He has a spontaneous, loaded technique. His work is dense and expressionistic and his colours are intense. Figures and objects, often defined by a single trait, seem to propose a symbolic vision of existence....
