Avant-garde Pop Art painter from Kyoto, Japan, who trained at the local art
school. After studying traditional Japanese-style painting, he and several
other painters joined forces to launch a new revolutionary movement.
Well known collectors John and Kimiko Powers had Shingo
Kusudas' works in their collection, and sponsored a Japanese-American
cultural research program in 1964 that brought Shingo Kusuda to the United
States to work with contemporary American artists.
Works by Shingo Kusuda have sold for as much as
$4,800.00 at auction.
