Event description

Description

Join London Original Print Fair for this special hands-on demonstration by master woodblock carver Motoharu Asaka.

Hokusai's The Great Wave is one of the best-known images in the history of art and represents the pinnacle of ukiyo-e printmaking in Japan's Edo period. This flourishing of woodblock prints in the 19th century had global reach, influencing European artists such as Van Gogh and Monet. Motoharu Asaka apprenticed under the guidance of his brother Tadao Takamisawa (1899-1985), and today continues to preserve the tradition and nurture new generations of woodblock carvers through his workshop, Takumi Hanga Kobo Fureaikan in Tokyo.

Motoharu Asaka will demonstrate the last five stages of printing The Great Wave by hand from blocks he carved. Louise Rouse, Art Professor at the Japanese campus of Temple University will translate.
