Biography of Koji Kinutani

Koji Kinutani

Born in Nara in 1943. Kinutani formed an intimacy with his historic surrounds from his early age and cultivated a rich artistic sensibility. After studying in the Oil Painting Department, Tokyo National University of Fine Art and Music, he went on to the Mural Painting Course in the university's graduate school, where he encountered classic fresco painting techniques. He later went to study in the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice where he acquired the modern expression of the techniques of classical fresco mural painting and formed the idea of his striking, imaginary worlds. After returning to Japan, he established an innovative, dynamic style that garnered him several art awards. He has been at the forefront of the Japanese art world for more than 40 years. In addition to being an educator, guiding the next generation at Tokyo University of the Arts and Osaka University of Arts, he created the "Koji Kinutani Prize" to support young, up-and-coming artists. In addition to being involved in the "Kids Dream/Art/Academy" sponsored by the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Kinutani keeps communicating the joy and fun in being creative to the next generation. A member of Japan Art Academy. Selected as a Person of Cultural Merit in 2014. Awarded the NHK Broadcasting Culture Award of Japan Broadcasting Corporation in 2015.
