About

Arichi studied under the Surrealist printmaker Yamanobe Yoshio and became known for his elegant abstract prints in which colourful, overlapping, horizontal and vertical ellipses floated through a futuristic space-time continuum. He has since moved into a more intimate, representational mode in which his earlier concerns with time and space are maintained, but the application has become more personal and diverse. Now Arichi is concerned with the scenery he sees around him; by photographing it, fragmenting it and choosing his own colours which he then applies by hand, he creates a unique and personal scenery.

After graduating from the Department of Art at Nihon University, Arichi furthered his studies by studying at the Bradford College of Art and Design in England in 1976 and 1977, and at Smith College in America in 1986 and 1987. Since 1988 he has been teaching at Nihon University. In 1990 he visited Australia, travelling around, conducting workshops, and producing new work of his own. The intrusion of landscape elements into his more recent work is a response to the strong impression the Australian countryside made on him.
