Kazuo Shiraga was a distinguished Japanese avant-garde artist noted for his unusual method: using his own body to apply paint to the canvas.  Revolutionary in the 1950s, this technique now seems to anticipate later international developments in performance art and conceptual art.

Born in Hyogo Prefecture in Western Japan, Shiraga initially studied Japanese-style painting at the Kyoto City Specialist School of Arts (now the Kyoto City University of Arts).  After graduating in 194 (showing 500 of 3801 characters).
