“The Sun may rise in Japan but it certainly goes to bed with Muhamed Kafedžić every night”
– Haris Rekanović, artist & poet
My association with BlackBOX is an example of how some traditions can survive through time and gain root from one culture and epoch into another one. In Japan, during Edo period, ukiyo-e prints served as mass produced posters from commoners. Usually artists would paint for printshop and then printshop would make multiple copies of the work. There was usually mutual understanding or contract between artist and the owner of the printshop, leading to the lifetime relationship.
In 2009 we were lucky to have Mr. Adachi from Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints with Mr. Kyoso as a Japanese traditional woodblock print demonstrator…
100 Views of Ukiyo-e is my life mission to re-create new originals of selected 100 Ukiyo-e prints, new original painting in new oban size.
My (prints) web-shop is online. Some of the artworks have direct link to the corresponding prints on web-shop or you can jump to the web-shop by clicking on the web-shop button in upper right corner.
