Born in 1913 in Kyoto, Japan, Ohtake did not begin her painting career until she was 40, but her work continues to stand the test of time. In 1936, at the age of 23, Ohtake visited her brother in Brazil, but as Japan became embroiled in the world conflict, she was unable to return to her birthplace for a long time and settled with her family in Brazil, a visit to a Japanese artist studio almost 15 years later inspired her to try her hand at painting, and Ohtake's first art exhibition was held at the Salão Nacional de Arte Moderna in 1957 made Ohtake special?
Unlike most of the artists of her time, who were trying to be rigid and precise, Ohtake's vibrant, undefined forms cast an 'imperfect geometry' on the canvas. The journey, which began in 1957, saw Ohtake hold many solo exhibitions over the next decade and receive various awards from Brazilian art salons Read| Google Doodle celebrates Czech Republic Freedom and Democracy Day 2023.
