Fuji Arts Contemporary Exhibition Part II - Over the summer we enjoyed exploring and selling from a recently acquired collection of contemporary prints purchased in Japan. This month we’re excited to post the second part of this collection as a follow up exhibition of contemporary designs. We’re looking forward to sharing these beautiful prints, all selected with an eye to the modern Japanese aesthetic. Have a look at the group and click on the Contemporary Japanese design link to see the entire collection.
Tadashige Nishida - Born in 1942 on Amami Oshima Island in the Kagoshima prefecture, Tadashige Nishida studied at the Chiba University near Tokyo and was interested in the Tokyo contemporary art scene as a student. He also studied contemporary European art in Spain in 1967 and American art in the United States in 1968. He participated in a number of group shows of contemporary artists from 1961 through the 1980s, and was the subject of numerous one-man shows during the same period. He is a recognized contemporary woodblock print master in Japan, and his works are actively collected by Japanese and foreign collectors.
