He hung out with Warhol. He’d been part of Japan’s post-war avant-garde movement, most well-known as the “boxing painter,” for his exhibitionist art where he would dip his cloth-bound hands in ink, and punch his way down a canvas. But his full potential was never realized.</p><p> Thu, 28 Feb 2013 18:41:21 +0000 Ryan Famuliner 29586 at http://kbia.org 'Cutie and the Boxer' tells an unconventional story about love, but not a love story
