Born 1912 in Tokyo, grew up in Iwate, Japan. Former name Shunsuke Sato. In 1925, after losing his hearing, he began to have aspirations to becoming a painter. Moving to Tokyo, he learned at Taihei Yogakai Institute. In 1936 he got married and changed his last name to Matsumoto. He named his studio Sogokobo (General Studio) and along with his wife Teiko, created a new drawing and essay magazine, "Zakkicho".

In 1943 he organized the Shinjin Gakai with seven others, including Aimitsu, Aso Saburo, and Terada Masaaki. This society opened three exhibitions. In 1947, along with the members of the Shinjin Gakai, he participated in the Jiyu Bijutsuka Kyokai. In 1948 he became sick and died in his home, Tokyo at the age of 36.
