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

Onchi was a pivotal figure in the early development of Japan's Creative Print movement. He led the First Thursday Society (Ichimokukai), a discussion and support group for artists intent on recreating woodblock printing in a distinctively Japanese, modern style. Experimental and expressionistic in his own way, Onchi moved between abstract and figurative work, revolutionizing the medium into a vehicle for modern art. Onchi was renowned for his experiments with abstract compositions that he car (showing 500 of 719 characters).
