Kosei Sasaki is an artist that has pushed artistic thinking to a higher level, starting with his “Jack Gathering” held at the forefront of avant-garde 1960’s activity to being at the center of the New York counter culture scene during the 1970’s. Kosei Sasaki broke away from the art world when returning to Japan in the 1980’s but started to paint again in the early 2000’s in his atelier built by hand located at the base of Mount Akagi, Gunma Prefecture. Sasaki vigorously waved his paint brush without stopping until his passing in April 2018.
