Biography

Self-taught Japanese painter Hide Kawanishi lived and worked throughout his career in the port city of Kobe. He was an exception among Sosaku hanga artists, most of whom worked in Tokyo. His work was noted for its forceful and distinctive use of color. Kawanishi purposely softened the edges of his forms by using a round chisel rather than a knife to carve the contours. Kawanishi came from a merchant class background and took up a career in art over his family's objections.
