Kenzo Okada (?? ?? "Okada Kenzo" September 28, 1902 – July 25, 1982) was a Japanese-born American painter and the first Japanese-American artist to work in the abstract expressionist style and receive international acclaim.According to Michelle Stuart, "when Okada came to the United States he was already a mature painter, well considered in his native Japan.
To American abstraction Okada brought civilized restraint, an elegance of device and an unusual gift for poetic transmutation of natural forms."
