Kato Art Duo is delighted to present Japanese modern artist, Mizu Tetsuo. Mizu was born in Tokyo in December 1944. In 1967, he encountered the works of Italian Jewish painter and sculptor, Amedeo Modigliani and was deeply inspired by him. Mizu enrolled into Musashino Art Academy in 1971 and right after his graduation he held his first exhibition in Tokyo.



This Decemeber, we will be introducing Mizu’s later abstract works which were heavy inspired by International Maritime Signal Flags. International Maritime signal Flags are various flags used to communicate with ships. These flags are of different color and shapes put together and each flag can represent an alphabet, a number or code words. Mizu adopt these patterns with fond memories of flag games he use to play with his daughter when he was in Italy. He creates rhythmic pattern signal abstractions with his signature mute color palettes.
