River Bank B, 1977 by Fumio Fujita (born 1933)

Original Fumio Fujita (born 1933) Japanese Woodblock Print
River Bank B, 1977

Sosaku Hanga - The sosaku hanga or creative print movement in Japan began in the early part of the twentieth century. Unlike the traditional collaborative woodblock printing process utilizing a separate artist, carver, and printer along with a publisher, the sosaku hanga movement emphasized artist involvement in designing, carving, and printing the blocks himself, as the sole creator of his work. The movement gained popularity following World War II, earning international acclaim and expanding subject matter to include abstraction. Today most contemporary Japanese print artists design, carve, and print their woodblocks themselves, continuing the vibrant creative tradition established with ukiyo-e. Sosaku hanga prints encompass a wide range of subjects and expressive artistic styles, and are a great choice for a collector interested in modern and contemporary prints.

Fumio Fujita - One of Japan's most well-known contemporary sosaku hanga artists, Fumio Fujita studied at the Musashino College of Fine Arts and began creating woodblock prints in 1963. His subjects are nature based, and he is best known for his many images of trees, especially birch trees - a signature Fujita image. He simplifies and reduces forms to their elements, bordering on abstract, with an emphasis on pattern and texture. Fujita’s prints are all pencil signed and numbered, limited editions. His works have been included in the prestigious Collage Women's Association of Japan (CWAJ) exhibitions several times. Fujita’s works are becoming increasing collectable, especially some of his earlier designs. His lovely prints would make a wonderful addition to any modern woodblock collection.
