Hung to a rope in her studio, Shiraga throws himself across the space above the canvas. With his feet, he spreads the painting in more or less violent movements. It is thanks to this way of approaching the work with the whole body that the painter obtains such an intensity, a method that gives him a worldwide reputation as "action painter".

His notoriety has shed light on the entire group Gutaï. His works continue to fascinate collectors from all continents.
