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.
Tsuyu no atosaki - Lovely, large format contemporary image of clematis blossoms in soft shades of violet and gray. A striking design by Honjo Masahiko, who graduated from the Kyoto University of Education in 1985 and studied woodblock printing with the great Masao Ido. His works have been included in the prestigious Collage Women's Association of Japan (CWAJ) exhibitions several times. This print is first in the edition of 150, a desirable number for a collector. Signed in pencil in bottom margin.
