Yokoyama Hasei was born in Seto, Aichi prefecture. After he dropped out of Seto Pottery School in 1928, he entered the National Ceramics Laboratory in Kyoto and started to paint. Although self-taught, he was elected for the Teiten in 1934 and participated in shows at art galleries. In 1948, he established Aoki Company, an organisation involved in painting research. He developed a very individual style in landscape painting.
