Biography Ralph Shigeto Iwamoto
Ralph Iwamoto first came to this country in 1948, settling in New York. While painting in that city he adopted a painting style that used surrealistic vocabulary and took it back to its source. This use of that genre's sources created a race of organisms (in his paintings) that were both flora and fauna. He fused Japanese concepts with those of cubism and geometric abstractionism.He has had many one-man shows in New York, Columbia, South Carolina and Hawaii.He is represented in diverse collections from the Japanese Cultural Center in Hawaii to the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT
