Manabu Kochi

Manabu Kochi

(1954-Present) Japanese

Manabu Kochi is a Japanese painter, sculptor, and engraver who created a tie between Primitive Arts and the most contemporary movement in European Modern Arts. In 1981 after training in Italy, Kochi moved to Paris where he used color, humor, harmony, and philosophy to establish a double perspective in his art. He enables his viewers to experience a personal close up as well as a detached universal experience through one image. Kochi illustrates familiar forms emerging from and dissolving back into a cosmic force-field, evoking an almost metamorphic feel to many of his pieces.
