Katsuyuki Nishijima (b. 1945)
Brilliant boats Chris – what a find -those bold outlines look contemporary & suggest Miyazaki of Gibli animations. When was it made, is this artist still working ? Love the limited palette of black, white and greys.
Greetings Lucy – yes, Nishijima is in his mid-seventies, and doing wonderful work. Very well-known in Japan. He does it all: design, carving the blocks, printing – a true Master….
Hi Christopher, I love it, but don’t know why. Something about the exact placement of the boats. The angles between them.
Thanks Sally Ann – Nishijima is a master designer. I seem to remember his original training was in architecture. Certainly, a lot of his prints depict traditional buildings (and boats).
