  Born in Utah

Painter New York, N.Y. and Los Angeles, CA

Kanemitsu lived in Japan until he was eighteen. In 1940 he returned to the United States, joining the Army in 1941. After the war, he studied with Fernand Leger in Paris; with Kuniyoshi, Sternberg, and others at the Art Student's League in New York; and with sculptor Karl Metzler in Baltimore. A highly recognized second generation Abstract Expressionist in New York, Kanemitsu came to Los Angeles on a Ford Foundation Fellowship in 1961, and settled there permanently.
