Biography Tatsuoki Nambata
Nambata Tatsuoki started to paint in the late 1920s after meeting the
older artist Takamura Kotaro (1883-1956), who became his master. Early
in his career he was inspired by the art of ancient Greece and created
paintings incorporating motifs from this place and period. However with
World War II came great upheaval in Japan, however an end to war in 1945
brought peace and an artistic regeneration.
Nambata was struck by the
rapid post-war re-building of Tokyo stating:
"The inorganic beauty of iron beams and iron reinforcing rods sprouting
to pierce the sky in the Tokyo of the postwar reconstruction period
struck me as something very novel, and their straight lines moved me
toward a new direction inNambata Tatsuoki-ten [Today's Artists: An Exhibition of
