    Art Brokerage: On Kawara Japanese Artist: b. 1933. On Kawara, born in the Aichi Prefecture of Japan, is a conceptual artist who sends postcards to friends with "I am still alive" written on them. This is only one of his art forms. Earlier in his career he exhibited telegrams. Since the mid-1960s, Kawara has painted two thousand "date paintings," each comprised of its date of completion stenciled in white on black. There is nothing else on the painting. He paints four or five layers of dark paint on a rectangular canvas and then puts several layers of white paint on with the date. On Kawara is self-taught and began creating environmental sculpture in 1953. Listings wanted.
