A longtime professor at the Art Institute of Chicago, Ray Yoshida influenced generations of artists over four decades, including Jim Nutt, Roger Brown, and Christina Ramberg. Associated with Chicago's Imagism tradition, which opposed the reigning abstraction of the day and found value in figuration, Surrealism, humor, and everyday visual culture, Yoshida is known for his "Comic Book Specimen" collages beginning in the late 1960s, as well as for later semi-abstract paintings using oddball imagery, rich pattern and color, and idiosyncratic techniques.
