Biography   Nobuo Kitagaki

Nobuo Kitagaki produced serene, reductive, geometric collages influenced by his time as a student in the 1940s at the Chicago Insitute of Design, otherwise known as the Chicago Bauhaus, where Laszlo Moholy Nagy was teaching.  As his work matured, Kitagaki introduced references to Japanese art, and his collages began to explore an ambiguous architectural space.  He made his living designing screens, which he sold from his shop on Grant Avenue in North Beach, center of the Beat Scene in San Francisco in the '50s and '60s.  During world war II he was placed in an internment camp but then released and cleared for service in the military.
