Okamoto, Tarō (Japanese painter, 1911-1996)

Note: Studied briefly at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts, then relocated to Paris from 1929-1940 where he became involved with the Abstraction-Création group. Okamoto and Kurt Seligmann developed their own theory of 'Neo-Concretism.' While in Paris Okamoto also attended classes in ethnology at the Sorbonne. He was influenced by the Surrealists in Paris and associated with Breton, Aragon and Ernst. He later published writings on Buddhist mysticism and created a theory of 'Non-Sense.' The Nazi occupation of Paris in 1940 caused his return to Japan, where he became an important influence on Japanese art after the war. In the 1950s he produced ceramic tile murals for public spaces in Tokyo.
