Biography  
Manabu Mabe


On January 30, 1979, after an exhibition in Tokyo, 53 of his paintings were on board a Varig cargo Boeing 707-323C en route from Tokyo - Narita to Rio de Janeiro-Galeão via Los Angeles. The aircraft went missing over the Pacific Ocean some 30 minutes (200 km ENE) from Tokyo.

The cause is unknown since the wreck was never found. The paintings were lost.

Mabe died in São Paulo on September 22, 1997.
