Milo (Milena) Hachim

“The illustration has made me lose a little shyness because I am very quiet. It makes it easier for me to speak by drawing.”

Katsuyuki Nishijima

Katsuyuki Nishijima was born in Yamaguchi Prefecture in 1945.  Since childhood he has loved Ukiyoe (woodblock prints) and after experimenting with various forms of printing processes he focused on the “creative print” style of woodblock printmaking.  His work is extremely popular depicting subjects of old traditional Japanese rural houses and landscape in and around Kyoto.  He is a contemporary modern artist using the same traditional printing technique not machine made.  Many examples of his artwork can be seen here at Artelino.
