Milt Kobayashi (American, b. 1950), Untitled, 1992, oil on canvas, sight: 23.5 x 19.5", frame: 31.25 x 27.25"

Although born in New York City, Kobayashi's early childhood was spent on the island of Oahu, Hawaii and later in California where he completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. In 1977, Kobayashi returned to New York to work as an illustrator and often toured New York's famous Metropolitan Museum of Art as well as the city's many galleries. It was from the inspiration of artists such as Velasquez, Whistler, Chase, Sargent and several others that he found his particular use of color, pattern, and his compositional style. It was also from these western masters' use of negative space as seen in Japanese Edo, or "pictures of the floating world", that Kobayashi was brought back to his Japanese-American heritage. Internationally recognized, Kobayashi has been awarded the National Academy of Design's Ranger Purchase Award as well as a Silver Medal from the Allied Arts Show in New York. He has been featured in publications ranging from American Art Collector to Forbes, Fortune, and Readers Digest.
