Yasuo Sum - Gutai Group

«Yasuo Sumi was born in 1925 — 2015. After joining Gutai in 1955, Sumi becomes a member of Art Club, the group represented by Taro Okamoto...Plenty of his works have become property of public national museums all over the world. Sumi is today an active member of the AU Group and participates to the group exhibitions.He uses abaci, vibrators and combs for his works. While painting and performing Sumi always wears a pair of geta (woodden japanese shoes) and a bangasa (japanese umbrella), and uses a soroban (japanese abacus). But the use of these instruments is peculiar: sorobans are, for example, used, together with japanese ink to create straight and curved lines on papers and canvas. Bangasa is used to blow violently canvases, thus making them damaged. Vibrators are used to spread rhytmically colours on papers and canvases.»

Evelyne Axell - Pop Art

Evelyne Axell (16 August 1935 – 10 September 1972) was a Belgian Pop painter. She is best known for her psychedelic, erotic paintings of female nudes and self-portraits on plexiglas that blend the hedonistic and Pop impulses of the 1960s.Axell's first painting were more classically based on oil. Axell soon after evolved a groundbreaking signature technique by using transparent and translucent plastic sheets from which she cut silhouettes of her voluptuous females and self-conscious heroines absorbed in (homo)erotic poses and activities. She enamel painted these contoured-cut sheets, often painting on both back and front surfaces, and mounted them on background panels to create layered, low relief images of the figures imbued with an opalescent, dream-like quality. With their upfront sexual imagery, the use of bright colors and manufactured plastic materials, their intense monochromatic surfaces and canvasses shaped like large sign post and public tableaux's, Axell's paintings owned the immediacy and commonality of Pop.

Jacek Sempoliński - Original Abstract Expressionism

Jacek Sempoliński (March 27, 1927 – August 30, 2012) was a Polish painter, draftsman, art professor, critic, and essayist.Sempoliński was born in Warsaw. He studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. He taught at his alma mater from 1956.
«His paintings should be viewed in the context of two important phenomena in Polish post-war art: the tradition of Polish Colorism (The Capist School), and the ethos of the generation of artists that exhibited at the Arsenal in 1955. While the Capist School saturated his paintings with what can be referred to as a „culture of painting“, the experience of the „Arsenal“ show added drama to his work and resulted in moral and ethical values informing his canvasses to the same extent as did formal values.In his series dating from the second half of the 1950s (Organy / Organs, Viola da gamba, Kompozycja z trąbką / Composition with Trumpet), the artist focused on music as his subject, drawing from it iconographic themes and simultaneously treating it as a symbolic realm. In the 1960s he began to combine motifs from landscape and architectural studies with color and texture solutions akin to those found in allusive

Víctor Grippo - Conceptual Art

Víctor Grippo (10 May 1936 – February 2002) was an Argentine painter, engraver and sculptor, considered the father of conceptual art in Argentina
 «Grippo produced a series of works called Analogías (Analogies), in which he emphasised the energy contained in natural products such as the potato, cereals and vegetables, as opposed to the cultural world constructed by man. His installations, objects and working methods, materialised with great refinement, lead to the reflection of universal and eternal subjects, such as life, death, Nature and the ability of man to transform himself through his work. The recognition of crafts in his work emphasises the conviction that the craftsman-artist proceeds as an alchemist who is able to transform material into a medium for ideas and poetic metaphors...»

Aleksander Kobzdej - Polish Abstract Painting

Aleksander Kobzdej (1920–1972) was a Polish painter. He was born in, what was then, Ukraine. Kobzdej is best known for being one of the most prominent representatives of the Polish Social Realist group, and for being the creator of unique Polish versions of «matter» painting.Kobzdej began studying architecture in 1939 at Lviv. He finished his degree in Gdansk Polytechnic Institute and later studied under Wladyslaw Lam at the Kraków Academy of Fine Arts.Kobzdej started off as a Post-Impressionist. His works eventually became more abstract. Toward the end of the 1940s, he exhibited bits of European Realism. «Signs of impending change appeared in Kobzdej's work at the beginning of the 1950s in a series of drawings he produced as an outgrowth of his travels to China and Vietnam (1954). These works demonstrate his interest in means of expression that do not reflect reality, and transform it instead into art. The artist abandoned the narrative bareness of representation opting for more subtle means of expression in both his paintings and drawings. His final abandonment of Socialist Realist iconography became evident in the series of paintings titled Gęstwiny / Arrays (1955). Towards the end of this same decade, the painter traveled around Western Europe.
