Hiroshi Asada was born in Kyoto in 1931. Though he came from a family of "'nihonga" [Japanese- style] painters, he enrolled in an economics course and when he took up painting in his spare time and began exhibiting in 1954, he was influenced by western art, including the European Art Informel movement. The dreamlike, surrealistic landscapes shown in New York were characteristic of his later style. Asada committed suicide in 1997.
