KASAI MASAHIRO

Silkscreen. Born 1954 Tokyo. Tokyo Gakugei University; Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris.

Permanent Collections: Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; Osaka Contemporary Art Centre. He has exhibited in Australia and the USA and has been awarded prizes including the 1997 Osaka Print Triennial (Prize); 1999 Frechen International Graphic Triennial, Germany; 2000 Krakow International Print Triennial, Poland.

Kasai’s delicate silk screens have always had nature and light as a theme, wih seasonal intonations. Over the last ten years he has concentrated on the theme of water, usually seen from within, which started with a series of prints entitled “La Musique de la Mer”. Kasai’s mastery lies in the “bokashi” technique where colour changes gradually from dark to light without any discernable breaks and subtly depicts the penetration of light.
