Yasse Tabuchi

Yasse Tabuchi is a Japanse artist born in Yasukazu Tabuchi on May 20, 1921 in the district of Fukuoka and died on November 24, 2009 (at age 88) in Vauhallan, south Paris. He studied art history at the University of Arts of Tokyo from 1946 to 1951. Watercolorist, engraver on copper, lithographer and ceramist, Yasse Tabuchi’s paintings belongs to the same line as  that of the group of painters called CoBrA, who practiced a lyrical form of abstraction after the war. He worked in France from 1951 until his death, his Japanase origins and his studies had a major influence on his work throughout his career, which explains why we repeatedly find motifs of flowers, leaves and rainbow prisms made of white spots which he calls “Monads“. He regularly uses  gold leaves  and the diptych shape. His work has been exhibited numerous times in solo and group exhibitions in France, Japan, Belgium and some of his pieces are part of collections in museums such as the National Museum of Modern Art of Kyoto, Japan or at the Center Georges Pompidou in Paris.
