Born in the United Stated in 1953, Joshua Rome went to Japan in 1973, apprenticing to well-known woodblock print artist Clifton Karhu. Today, he is one of the most-recognized artists working in the medium of woodblock printing, exhibiting internationally, with works included in major museum collections such as the British Museum. He designs, carves, and prints his works himself, often using a special burnishing technique that emphasizes the grain of the wood, adding a subtle, atmospheric texture. After living in rural village near Kyoto for twenty-five years, Rome returned to the U.S. in 1998, and now lives in Vermont. Collectors prize his lyrical, quietly expressive images.
