Takesada Matsutani

Takesada Matsutani is a Japanese, contemporary, mixed-media artist born on January 1, 1937 in Osaka, Japan. He is a member of the Gutai group since 1963. His well-known work involves a technique of blowing a gust of air into a puddle of vinyl wood glue, creating bulges, bubbles, and drips. He was inspired by the way the glue dried, using it as his ideal medium for many of his works.
These natural formations were a constant inspiration throughout most of his artwork thereafter. He is also known for his large, colorful, geometric pieces made using oil and acrylic on canvas.
Later in his career, Matsutani began eliminating the use of color, and alongside the wood glue, started incorporating the use of graphite into his pieces.
