Paul Horiuchi (1906-1999)
Paul Horiuchi was a painter and collagist. He was born in Japan and studied art at an early age. In 1946, Horiuchi moved Seattle and came to be associated with the Northwest School artists. In his mid-forties, he was able to devote himself to art full-time, and his unusual collage style became very popular in the 1950’s and 60’s. Horiuchi’s paintings and collage remain highly prized by collectors, are on permanent display at several museums, and continue to be the subject of special exhibitions at various museums and galleries.
In 1957, Horiuchi had his first solo show at Zoe Dusanne Gallery in Seattle, which was a major success. The following year, he had a solo museum show at the Seattle Art Museum, and quickly gained national and international success. Horiuchi held annual shows at Seattle’s Woodside/Braseth, selling out all his shows. He contributed an important public mural to the city of Seattle in 1962 for the World’s Fair, the mural amphitheater at the Seattle Center.
Solo exhibitions of Horiuchi’s work include Seattle Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, Zoe Dusannne Gallery, Seattle, and Woodside/Braseth, Seattle. Group exhibitions include Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, Bellevue Arts Museum, Museum of Northwest Art, La Conner, Wing Luke Asian Museum, Seattle, Felix Landau Gallery, Los Angeles, and Nordness Gallery, New York. In 1974, his work was in the Smithsonian Institute’s “Art of the Pacific Northwest” exhibition in Washington, D.C.. Since 1956, Horiuchi’s work has been exhibited in Japan many times, including a solo show at the Yamanashi Prefectural Museum of Art in 2003.
