l Kiyokawa Taiji
 



Starting to produce oil paintings while still in school, Kiyokawa Taiji originally focused on figurative works. Then,after traveling to the U.S. in the 1950s, he switched to purely abstract expressions. Gradually changing his style throughout his career, Kiyokawa explored a unique type of art in which he refused to simply copy the shapes of things. He was involved in a wide range of activities, including not only painting, but also making stainless-steel sculpture as well as designing daily necessities such as handkerchiefs and teacups. In 1949, Kiyokawa built a studio-cum-residence in Seijo, Setagaya, and continued to live on the property until his death.
 
l Citizens' Gallery


The facility also houses a gallery where residents of Setagaya can display their own artistic endeavors.
