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 Japanâ€™s greatest living woodblock printer, his work is easily recognizable by his use of â€˜flatâ€™ perspective often depicted from a high vantage point. His prints are available in Azuma Gallery, Seattle.
