Born in Chicago, 1913, as Earle Goodenow he attended Chicago Art Institute, National Academy of Design, and Art Student's League in New York.
As Earle Goodenow he illustrated Children's books in the 1940s and 1950s.
For over four decades Kyohei Inukai has created his own brand of illusionary art. Distinctively fine edges and careful tonal variations have always characterized much of his painting and print making.
His paintings have been shown at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Portland Museum of Art, and the Rose Art Museum.
His ability to bend and shape forms is deceptively 3-D to the viewing eye. Much of his work is styled similar to modern architectural design, which accounts for the large number of major U.S. corporations which own his work. lnukai is also a noted sculptor dealing primarily in steel and aluminum. He has been commissioned for many large scale projects including Riverside Mall in Chicago and Monmouth Mall in Eatontown, N.J.
