Painter, filmmaker, potter, calligrapher, Ikebana master, designer, & impresario -- Teshigahara is an artist in the fullest sense of the word. His life in art became a quest for resolution: between past & present, inherited & avant-garde forms, Japanese tradition & Western innovation. As the son of the artist & Ikebana master Sofu, Teshigahara grew up with an acute consciousness of Japanese art history. He reached maturity in the wake of WW2, & his artistic consciousness was forged in that crucible of intellectual & artistic energies where, with young talents like Kobo Abe & Segi Shinichi, he sought to rebuild a Japanese identity from the ashes of defeat. “A fitting tribute to an exceptional artistic personality.” Black & white photos.
