Nambata Fumio: Works 1960-1974

Born the second son of Tatsuoki Nambata, one of the forefathers of abstract expressionism in Japan, Fumio Nambata never had much chance to outdo his dad's legacy: he lost his life in a tragic accident at the age of 32. Yet the 15 years preceding his demise were marked by a startling productivity, meaning that Nambata completed over 2,000 works during his short lifetime. There will be around 240 of these on display at Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, including some of his most vivid watercolours, alongside a selection of sketches and photographs.
