Hiroyuki Tajima - (1911 - 1984)
Hiroyuki Tajima was born in Tokyo Japan in 1911. In 1932 he graduated from Nihon University and in 1943 from the Western-style painting division of the Tokyo School of Fine Arts where he had studied Western style painting.
The artist made his first print in 1946, the same year he joined the Bijutsu Bunka Kyokai, a group instrumental in bringing abstract and surrealist painting back to Japan after the war. In the 1960s and 1970s Tajima developed his well-known abstract style of prints made of dense rich pigments on complex surfaces formed by building the block up with various materials. His prints were inspired by the ideals of East Asian calligraphy, traditional Japanese painting structures and a sense of space influenced by Zen Buddhist beliefs. This talented artist died in 1984.
