Fuji Arts Contemporary Exhibition Part II

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.

Fumio Kitaoka - Born in Tokyo, Fumio Kitaoka studied at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts and later in Paris at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts. Kitaoka experimented with a range of subjects and styles from bold abstractions to expressionist figures, and is known for his later colorful landscape woodblock prints. Kitaoka taught in the USA during the 1960s and exhibited internationally, showing regularly at the celebrated College Women's Association of Japan's annual print show in Tokyo. His vibrant and distinctive works are popular with modern collectors and are included in the collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
