Born in Osaka in 1923, Senkichiro Nasaka met Kazuo Shiraga at the Kyoto Painting University in 1942. In 1965 he became a full member of the group Gutai after presenting his work at the 15th Gutai Art Exhibition.

The works of the first Gutai period, characterized by subtle nuances of colors, are particularly requested by the collectors of the movement.

His work probes a universe of organic forms where the paint is explored for its liquidness, its play with transparency and flows.
