Tajima Hiroyuki specialized in Western painting during his art studies at Nihon University and the Tokyo School of the Arts. In 1946, his interest in Dada and Surrealism led him to join Bijutsu Bunka Kyokai, a group of artists dedicated to reviving the abstract ideals that had been suppressed during World War II.

Good Evening, with its dense pigmentation and rich, textural use of color, exemplifies his typical style of the 1950s and 1960s. Although the forms are abstract, his work of that period reflects the ideals of Asian calligraphy, traditional Japanese painting structure, and a sense of space derived partly from Zen Buddhist beliefs.
