These contemporary woodblock prints are the creations of Japanese artist, Rei (Ray) Morimura. He began his career as a modern painter using abstract geometric forms, which later had a deep influence in much of his prints of Japanese landscapes. Considered one of Japan’s greatest living woodblock printer, his work is easily recognizable by his use of ‘flat’ perspective often depicted from a high vantage point. His prints are available in Azuma Gallery, Seattle.
