About Kiyoshi Saito

Kiyoshi Saito (1907-1997) was influenced by the cultural legacies of northern Japan and its sparse landscape. His combination of a folksy-archaic roughness with an expressionist abstraction gave his work a distinctive contemporary feel. Saito's work captures his subjects with compositional clarity and simplicity that lend his work a freshness that persists to this day. Motifs include everything from landscapes, portraits, and still lifes to animals and plants of all sorts.
