Tsubota Masahiko was born in 1947 in Himejo City, Hyogo, Japan. Graduated in studies in art at Osaka University in 1970.
The artist has been noted for the perfect precision of his work. He has been described as ‘the artist who removes anything that is not necessary.’
An expressive element in his work is often the parallelogram, which he has said serves to integrate with the surrounding area. Also he uses multiplie individual forms because he has suggested that nothing in nature occurs in isolation, and to create a steady rhythm.
