Susumu Koshimizu (b.1944, Aichi) started his career while student in 1967. Together with artists like
Nobuo Sekine, he became a core member of the “Mono-ha” movement. In his works, he continues to
focus on the material properties of the mediums he works with. His latest artworks are wooden reliefs,
and he has especially paid attention to his Japanese identity while working with the traditional material.
Koshimizu has always sought to question the motivations and foundations of art, and his works challenge
the conventions of sculpture.
