Imai Morihiko (1923-2013) was born in Kobe and raised in Kyoto where he attended the Municipal Arts and Crafts School, graduating advanced studies at the Municipal School of Painting (mod. Kyoto University of Fine Arts) in 1943. That same year he was accepted into the Bunten (mod. Nitten) where he would often exhibit. For a period he would remain at the school in a research position. He took a place in the atelier of Yamaguchi Kayo in 1955, and would exhibit with his Shinchosha as well. He took the Nishunten Prize at the 6th Nishunten in 1971, and was again awarded there at the 9th exhibition in 1974. He earned merit at the 1977 Nitten and was awarded at both the Nitten and Nishunten in 1980, and again at the Nitten in 1981. His work is held in the collection of the Chisoku Art Museum, Museum of Modern Art Kyoto and Fukui Prefectural Museum among others.
