ARTIST INFO

Sadaharu HORIO

Sadaharu HORIO (1939-) joined Gutai Art Association in 1965. Since about 1985 up to the present, he has stuck to one theme “ordinary things”, supporting his philosophy, which is “artworks are generated from the life” and develops strong creative life. His creative activity which the art is relevant to the daily life makes us halt to think again about the meaning of the fine art.
