Yoshishige SAITO
Saito, born 1904 in Tokyo, started working as an artist during the Taisho and early Showa eras under the impact of European avant-garde movements such as Dada and Constructivism. His reliefs were rejected from the Nika exhibition for conforming neither to the definition of the painting nor the sculpture category.

Saito’s approach thus stands out from the prewar art scene as he could not easily be fitted into any of the established genres of art of that time. After the war, Saito’s reputation in Japan and abroad continued to grow, and he taught many young artists who later became leaders in their own respective fields, particularly the Mono-ha movement of the 1970s.
