What is Mono-Ha?
Meaning "School of things" Mono-ha originated in Tokyo in the mid-1960s. Instead of traditional artwork, the artists of Mono-ha made use of the different materials and their various properties in their works to show dismay for the industrialization that was occurring in Japan at the time. The movement ended up gaining international attention and is a widely-respected form of art.Artwork by Lee Ufan
