For our latest exhibition, we have hand picked a variety of prints covering broad aspects of print in Japan.
From the traditional styles of Yoshitoshi Mori and Tanaka Ryōhei, to the meditative and abstract works of Toko Shinoda – the exhibition aims to provide viewers, both digitally and physically, the opportunity to experience the fascinating story of printmakers from the Edo period to the modern day.
Featured artists include Clifton Karhu – one of the most popular post-war sosaku-hanga artists, Shiko Munakata – referred to widely as the Japanese Picasso, Tanaka Ryohei, master of the etching technique. As well as established artists Yoshitoshi Mori, Toko Shinoda, Takahashi and Yoshikatsu.
