Kosuke Kimura combines traditional Japanese painting and print vocabulary with modern commercial graphic photography. Combining visual information, he tries to approximate the complexity of modern life and the umbilical cord of traditional value in it. Kimura studied print at Kyoto City University of Arts in the late 1950s. After graduation, he became a graphic designer, and his experience led him to challenge his notion of making prints as contemporary art. His work, which had initially been controversial in Japan, was well received internationally. Over time his work became popular and became acclaimed. He was a professor at Kyoto Institute of Technology and was appointed the 9th President in 1998.
