Biography from Palm Beach Modern Auctions:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Hisao Domoto grew up in a family of artists, including his uncle Domoto Insho.  At the Kyoto Municipal School of Arts and Crafts he studied Nihonga, Japanese-style painting.  While he was still in school, one of his works was selected for the Nitten exhibition, an achievement that raised high hopes for his future.

In 1952 he traveled with his uncle on his first trip to Europe and, fed up with the closed world of art in Japan, turned his eyes overseas.  In 1955 he moved to France and began to paint in the Western-style, then threw himself body and soul into the Informel movement.  His first solo exhibition at the Stadler Gallery in Paris was a brilliant success.  In these works his brushstrokes slashed left and right, covering the canvas with horizontal strokes.

During the early 1960s, however, he left Informel and produced the Solutions of Continuities series, using heavy impasto to create images of wheel tracks or louvered doors.  In the 1970s, he employed repeated circles in works whose names are taken from astronomical bodies.  Starting in the 1980s, his range expanded to include zig-zag lines in a wide range of acrylic colors, giving birth to the Continuous Response series.nnSince 2000, Domoto has been experimenting with monochrome works in which the pigments are splattered on the canvas.
