Luna, woodblock print on paper, 2019. I’ve previously posted the public version of this print, Nemesis (see below) and here is the final, more symbolist version. I was asked by a US museum to create a woodblock print featuring ‘mokume’ or woodgrain printing, and that is the final image, the support under the cat. I used a salvaged piece of very weathered wood for this, which was pretty hard to print from, especially to get the bokashi shading from dark purple to very light, left to right. The second detail is of the moon of the title and the third is the embossing on the hairs of the cat’s fur to give it texture. #japaneseprint #japaneseprints #woodblock #woodblockprint #woodblockprintmaking #hanga #mokuhanga #blockprinting #reliefprints #handmadeprints #blockandbaren #japaneseart #ukiyoe #floatingworld #woodcut #contemporaryprint #contemporaryprintmaking #sandiego #paulbinnie

Kawase Hasui, Snow at Kiba, 1934. He makes it look easy, but this sophisticated design has no traditional outline keyblock. Evening snow falls gently on the banks of the Kiba River, no people in sight. Famous for its lumberyards, we see several log rafts along both banks of the river. The snowflakes are embossed into the paper. First edition.

Health and Sports Day (体育の日 Taiiku no hi), also known as Health-Sports Day or Sports Day, is a national holiday in Japan held annually on the second Monday in October. It commemorates the opening of the 1964 Summer Olympics held in Tokyo and exists to promote sports and an active lifestyle.⁠ ⁠ The festival usually begins with a parade featuring all the different teams that will be participating: it could be divided by neighborhood, class, geographic area, or school. There is sometimes a local marching band providing music. Once the parade has gone around the field and lined up in the middle, the band will play Kimigayo and the Japanese flag will be raised. Local officials will make speeches welcoming everyone. Often everyone will spread out across the grounds for group stretching (this stretching routine was developed by the government and is done daily by many Japanese people; the stretching routine music is broadcast daily on the radio and TV). Then it is time to start the events.[citation needed]⁠ ⁠ In 2020, Health and Sports Day will be permanently renamed Sports Day (スポーツの日 Supōtsu no hi). For 2020 only, Sports Day will be held on July 24, to coincide with the opening of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.⁠ ⁠ PC: @bentojapo⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #japanesetraditional #japanesedesign #japaneselandscape #japaneselife #japaneseantique #japaneseartist #japanesehistory #japanesepainting #japanesecraft #ukiyoe #woodblockprint #japanesewoodblockprint #japaneseprint #japaneseprints #blockprint #blockprints #printart #japanese #japan #japaneseaesthetic #japaneseart #wallart #homedecor #japaneselandscape #japaneseculture⁠ #japanism⁠ #healthandsportsday #healthsportsday #taiikunohi #体育の日⁠

“A Thunder Shower” (Ô-yûdachi), from the series “One Hundred Pictures by Kyôsai” (Kyôsai hyakuzu), woodblock print, 18.4 x 12.6 cm, 1863 (this a later Meiji edition). The original woodblock prints from Kyôsai’s series “One Hundred Pictures by Kyôsai” were first published by Wakasaya Yoichi between 1862 and 1866 and were issued as single-sheet prints. The complete series was later re-published in album form by Okura Magobei (Okuraya) in 1881-86. Most of the images in the series draw upon Japanese mythology, folklore and proverbs. #kawanabekyosai #onehundredpictures #hyakuzu #kyosai #thundershower #yûdachi #ukiyoe #woodblockprint #caricatureartist #japanesehumor #oni #demon #caughtinaweb #japaneseprint #japanesefolklore #japonisme #japonism #milanexhibition @mudecmi #culturalexchange #edojapan #japaneseart #artadvisor

Sto provando qualcosa di nuovo, ispirandomi a degli antichi disegni giapponesi (kakejiku) che venivano realizzati su rotoli di seta, per poi essere appesi sulle pareti di casa mettendoli in mostra per i propri ospiti. Ovviamente non sono paragonabili a ciò che ho realizzato io ahahah, insomma manca il rotolo di seta, la tecnica e manca soprattutto uno studio molto approfondito sulla loro tradizione...sono solo schizzi e bozzetti su un foglio per acquarelli riciclato 😅, però sono molto felice del risultato! 🎎🎏 Realizzato con inchiostro, grafite acquarellabile e carboncini. #japaneseart #instart #dailyart #graphite #charcoal #watercolor #landscape #cliff #tradition #japaneseprint #japan #kakejiku #kakejikuart #drawing

🌿MOSS🌿 Limited edition of 10 Japanese Woodblock prints, made during my residency in Kawaguchiko, Japan. 4 blocks, 6 colours . MOSS was inspired by the Ewahiba moss that was growing around our residency building in Kawaguchiko, Japan. My entire time there was spent exploring the surroundings and documenting the plants that grew around Mt Fuji. This moss especially caught my eye since one minute it curled up into a ball and the next day it would be completely unfurled and majestically spread out. I couldn’t understand what influenced it to open and close, so this piece shows the moss surrounded by the mystical forces that helps it make up it’s mind. . Production Notes: This was the second woodblock print I made and I was still struggling to understand registration and getting it accurate. I remember vividly the prints not matching up and me dying all week in a cold sweat. I had half a mind to discard the blocks. Then our sensei came over end of the week and taught my how to fix the registration by doing a bit of surgery on the block (cutting a sliver of wood and pasting it with glue). This is when I realized this form of printmaking is never learnt once, it's something that needs to be perfected.

Kabuki Actor (1858)⁠ ⁠ Available from $39 on our website --> https://bit.ly/2B9sLTO (shop link in bio)⁠ ⁠ In a dynamic sweeping pose, the kabuki actor readies himself to use his kendo.⁠ ⁠ Although this piece is simply titled "kabuki actor", the date of this Kunisada print hints at being a scene from the play 'Edo Zakura Kiyomizu Seigen'. In the actor’s hand is a 'kendo', a two-handed samurai sword made of bamboo used for fencing. ⁠ ⁠ In the Edo period, fighting was no longer needed for survival, so the practice of kendo had more moral and spiritual significance. But in the kabuki play, the art of fencing is used once more for fighting.⁠ ⁠ In a famous scene, a group of fencing disciples of rônin Torii Shinzaemon, stroll through the pleasure quarter looking for trouble. They drink sake and instigate an argument with the seller, dragging the old man away and beating him. A man overhears and comes to help, who the kendo fighters realize is the infamous otokodate Sukeroku, leader of the ‘black hands’ gang. The kendo disciples scurry off, and Sukeroku makes amends with the sake seller on their behalf.⁠ ⁠ Outlaws such as this would have been recognizable by their tattoos, here being pictured in extraordinary detail. The dark silver background coloring was made using 'mica'; a ground-down pigment using mother of pearl. An interesting aspect of this piece is Kunisada’s use of perspective, a technique borrowed from western art. Using the mica, Kunisada creates depth and shadow, alluding to figures hastening past under the cloak of night.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #japanesetraditional #japanesedesign #japaneselandscape #japaneselife #japaneseantique #japaneseartist #japanesehistory #japanesepainting #japanesecraft #ukiyoe #woodblockprint #japanesewoodblockprint #japaneseprint #japaneseprints #blockprint #blockprints #printart #japanese #japan #japaneseaesthetic #japaneseart #wallart #homedecor #japaneselandscape #japaneseculture⁠ #japanism⁠ #japaneseatattoo #kabuki #kabukitattoo #tattooinspiration⁠

‘Yakusha-e’, translates literally to mean “actor pictures”, and emerged as a direct result of the artistry, flair and popularity of kabuki theatre. Along with beauty prints (Bijin-Ga), actor prints were the earliest print genre, and inspired many artists in Japan and across the world (even Van Gogh was an avid collector).⁠ ⁠ The name ‘kabuki’ is formed of the kanji characters that mean ‘sing’, ‘dance’, and ‘skill’. But perhaps the best way to understand it is from its humble historical beginnings.⁠ ⁠ At the very beginning of the Edo period - in 1603 - a shinto shrine maiden named Okuni began performing in a dried-up river bed in Kyoto. She gathered together a troupe of female outcasts and prostitutes and began telling stories through dance and drama. It was wildly popular and drew large crowds, so naturally rival troupes formed quickly. ⁠ ⁠ Kabuki then moved into the pleasure district of Edo, the ‘Yoshiwara’, where performers were also available for prostitution. As it was an exclusively female production, actors played male and female roles, and kabuki became both a satirical and erotic form of entertainment.⁠ ⁠ Visit our website to learn more about the Kabuki stage and the actors --> https://bit.ly/2VsWyjF (web link in bio)⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #japanesetraditional #japanesedesign #japaneselandscape #japaneselife #japaneseantique #japaneseartist #japanesehistory #japanesepainting #japanesecraft #ukiyoe #woodblockprint #japanesewoodblockprint #japaneseprint #japaneseprints #blockprint #blockprints #printart #japanese #japan #japaneseaesthetic #japaneseart #wallart #homedecor #japaneselandscape #japaneseculture⁠ #japanism⁠ #japaneseatattoo #kabuki #kabukitattoo #tattooinspiration⁠

______________________________________________ “Koshu Yoshidaguchi, Unoshima” | By: Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870-1949) _______________________________________________ Created in 1938, this beautiful shin-hanga landscape print depicts Mount Fuji , Lake Kawaguchi and trees, done typical of Koitsu’s signature style and the style of the 20th century shin-hanga movement. The seasonal variety and impressive landscape provided by Mount Fuji and it’s surroundings, have made this lake a popular destination for many ukiyo-e artists. Although Koitsu is a well-known artist of the shin-hanga movement, he is not yet among the trendy names like Kawase Hasui, Ito Shinsui or Natori Shunsen. Koitsu specialized in landscape images. His beautiful prints are of excellent quality and a good, affordable buy for collectors of Japanese twentieth century prints. _______________________________________________ #picturesofthefloatingworld #ukiyoe #浮世絵 #art #artist #artwork #fineart #japaneseart #japanesehistory #arthistory #arteducation #artmuseum #drawing #painting #woodblockprint #japaneseprint #printmaking #reliefprinting #japanesetattoo #mountfuji #tsuchiyakoitsu

Kunisada Utagawa was the most popular, prolific and commercially successful designer of ukiyo-e woodblock prints in 19th Century Japan. In his own time, his reputation far exceeded that of his contemporaries such as Hokusai.⠀ ⠀ We love the soft colour palette and patterned fabrics in this print, in which a teahouse waitress reads a letter.⠀ ⠀ #mutedtones #pocketofmyhome #cornerofmyhome #easyliving #the_gentle_manifesto #simplepleasures #smallmomentsofcalm #simplethingsmadebeautiful #japanesestyle #japaneseliving #japanesehouse #japanhouse #japaneseprint #woodblock #imprinted #teahouse #printmakers #botanicalprint #relaxandunwind #downtime #thathyggefeeling #timetounwind #aquietstyle #theartofslowliving #showusyourhygge #mindfulliving #windingdown #printmakers #folkandstory #ukiyoe

Ukiyo-e artists used symmetry to create a beautiful sense of harmony.⁠ We see in this Hasui print, the great Buddha and the tree almost bowing towards each other. Looking down now, we find two birds on the Buddha's hand are doing the same. We also see this happening with the woman and child bowing towards the Buddha and the Buddha bowing towards them, giving it the perfect sense of balance.⁠ ⁠ From the webinar we held last month, hosted by Jack, the founder of Rising Sun Prints, we showed you how to analyze, interpret, read and discuss Japanese works of art.⁠ ⁠ Learn more interesting facts and useful information about interpreting the spectacular work of Ukiyo-e by watching our most recent webinar --> https://bit.ly/2oq1R7K⁠ The weblink for the webinar replay is also found in our Instagram stories.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #japanesetraditional #japanesedesign #japaneselandscape #japaneselife #japaneseantique #japaneseartist #japanesehistory #japanesepainting #japanesecraft #ukiyoe #woodblockprint #japanesewoodblockprint #japaneseprint #japaneseprints #blockprint #blockprints #printart #japanese #japan #japaneseaesthetic #japaneseart #wallart #homedecor #japaneselandscape #japaneseculture⁠ #japanism⁠ #japaneseatattoo #buddha #kawasehwasui #tattooinspiration⁠

Sunflowers are very inspirational with their bright yellow color. 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼This week I have been reviewing paintings by Vincent van Gogh in Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, where I visited in June. The more I look at those sunflower paintings, the more I understood about how this creative artist and his artistic power bursted like volcano. 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 One recent story about the sunflower: One day a few weeks ago, the cashier in the grocery store was so happy to see my sunflower grocery bag which I got from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. She told me she is a big fan of Van Gogh. And she also showed her key chain with a Van Gogh's portrait. I recognized iit's a MET souvenir. Two weeks ago, my friend took me to visit Philadelphia Museum of Art, where we saw one sunflower painting by Van Gogh. I told my friend that I had to get two identical postcards with Van Gogh's sunflower painting. Yesterday I finally saw the cashier working at the check-out station and I queued at her line and handed her the sunflower postcard when my turn came. She was so joyful and quickly scanned the sunflower. I was so happy to share the artistic appreciation for sunflowers. 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 As another color story about Van Gogh's artistic creation process, I choose to share with my friends tomorrow about how Japanese prints inspired Van Gogh in his artistic creation process. The colorful fashion kimonos in the woodcuts depicting the "floating world" are so visually stimulating and vivid. ... ...

_______________________________________________ “Guan Yu” | By: Toyohara Kunichika (1835-1900) _______________________________________________ Created in 1874, this awesome print depicts Guan Yu (died 220), courtesy name Yunchang, who was a general serving under the warlord Liu Bei (161-223) during the late Eastern Han dynasty of China. Guan Yu's life was lionised and his achievements glorified to such an extent after his death that he was deified during the Sui dynasty. Through generations of story telling, culminating in the 14th-century historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, his deeds and moral qualities have been given immense emphasis, making Guan Yu one of East Asia's most popular paradigms of loyalty and righteousness. The artist Kunichika was described as having an open, friendly and sincere personality. He enjoyed partying with the geishas and prostitutes of the Yoshiwara district, while consuming abundant amounts of alcohol. His greatest passion, however, was said to be the theater, where he was a backstage regular. He was constantly in debt and often borrowed money from the kabuki actors he depicted so admiringly. A contemporary said of him: "Print designing, theater and drinking were his life and for him that was enough”. _______________________________________________ #picturesofthefloatingworld #ukiyoe #浮世絵 #art #artist #artwork #fineart #japaneseart #japanesehistory #arthistory #arteducation #artmuseum #drawing #painting #woodblockprint #japaneseprint #printmaking #reliefprinting #japanesetattoo #guanyu #toyoharakunichika

Ichikawa Shinsha I as Okano Kin'emon Kanehide (1864) Available from $39 on our website --> bit.ly/2M3R1wS (shop link in bio) In a swift flowing movement, Okano Kin’emon Kanehide draws one of his swords and fends off a thrown bouquet. Pictured in a bold graphic kimono and chainmail, with details in exquisite rust and teal. This dynamic print comes from "Stories of the True Loyalty of the Faithful Samurai", and is from the last series of prints created by Kunisada before his death. If you look above Okano’s sword, you can see a yellow rhombus with the Kana symbol inside. Each print in the series references a kabuki actor in his role, and this play is adapted from the story of the 47 Ronin. As the tale goes, in 1702 Kira Kozukensuke aggravated Lord Asano of Ako, triggering him to draw his sword. But, being in the shogun’s palace, this was seen as incredibly dishonouring, so Asano was forced to take his own life. This meant that Asano’s 47 retainers became Ronin – samurai without masters – who then pledged to avenge their leader. A year later, the Ronin attacked Kira’s palace and decapitated him. They took his head to Asano’s grave, to restore his honour, and then promptly took their own lives. This piece is a typical 'mitate-e'; a ukiyo-e technique that layers many meanings, ideas, symbols and narratives usually for humorous effect. An obvious example here is of the bouquet that tangles Okano. Flowers would traditionally have filled the palace, and this decorative bouquet ensnares Okano and his sword as he draws it, suggesting a mockery of palace life. 🎏 Reminder, just by commenting on our Instagram posts, you are automatically entered into our giveaway that's happening this week, the winner will be announced Friday. 🎏 . . . . #japanesetraditional #japanesedesign #japaneselandscape #japaneselife #japaneseantique #japaneseartist #japanesehistory #japanesepainting #japanesecraft #ukiyoe #woodblockprint #japanesewoodblockprint #japaneseprint #japaneseprints #blockprint #blockprints #printart #japanese #japaneseaesthetic #japaneseart #wallart #homedecor #japaneselandscape #japaneseculture⁠ #japanism⁠ #japaneseatattoo #kabuki #kabukitattoo #tattooinspiration⁠

Today I have been exploring Mixed Media Collage. This is from a sketch I have had hanging around in my sketchbook for ages and I decided to attempt to make a repeat pattern from it. I love doing it but it is very time consuming.... I need to play around with it a bit (a lot) more, but I am parking it here for now or I will never get on to anything else....... #makeitindesign #ultimateportfoliobuilder #mixedmediacollage

Here is another finished one! 😊 I feel I’m creating my little Paradise with this illustration series 🌈 And I’m so glad I’ve the opportunity to learn so much about Japanese Culture. It’s very interesting the amount of symbolism, care, and detail they put into everything. This one represents Kinkaku-Ji, also known as the Temple of the Golden Pavilion, a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto. It is one of the most popular buildings in Japan, and it’s designated as a National Special Historic Site, a National Special Landscape and is one of 17 locations making up the Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto! After this project, I have a huge desire to travel to travel to Japan and just dive into all these beautiful landscapes… Wouldn’t you live there?! 😋 Hope you enjoy. Feedback it's more than welcome!
