Kingei Marui(1909 - 1979) was born in Japan.
During the social upheavals of wartime (World War 2), he, all of a sudden, stopped painting at the age of 29 (reason still unknown). After the war, he became a teacher of a senior high school to teach the younger generation. His bio is not known in detail.
