He came to the United States in 1906 and studied art in Los Angeles and at the Art Students League in New York City. He visited Europe in 1925 and in 1928. Kuniyoshi's work has been described as Asian in spirit but Western in technique, with an inclination toward somber color. His paintings, drawings, and prints are rich in symbolism and fantasy.
