Bio

Hirano Chikuitsu was a member of the last generation to carry on the Japanese tradition of literati painting—a movement inspired by the art of Chinese scholar-amateurs, who championed personal expression and calligraphic brushwork. Chikuitsu exhibited at the most prestigious national salons and in 1929 he had a solo exhibition in Taiwan, which was then under Japanese control.
