Tokujiro Nishi lives in Tokyo, Japan. He began his studies in art in the 1930’s. He paints in the tradition of the American artist and historian Ernest Fenollosa (1853-1908), who introduced oil painting to Japan in the 19th century.
Nishi’s paintings of Japanese shrines and temples and Europe’s historic buildings are painted with thick impasto and brilliant color.
