Suda Kokuta (1906-1990) is a contemporary Japanese painter and calligrapher particularly known for his expressive and vigorous brushwork. Having experimented figurative painting in his early years, the artist moved into abstraction in the 1950s. He was later introduced to avant-garde calligraphy through the Bokubi journal and the Bokujin-kai members. Upon joining the Kokugakai (National Painting Association), he started studying writings by Japanese philosophers and texts about Zen Buddhism, which is reflected in the present work.

Suda’s bold calligraphic masterpieces of Buddhist dictums are found amongst numerous museum collections, including The Minneapolis Institute of Art (acc. no. 2013.29.1301) and The Metropolitan Museum of Art (acc. no. 2018.853.37), New York.
