Artist of the moment…..Toshi Yoshida

Toshi Yoshida was the son of master Japanese printmaker Hiroshi Yoshida. Toshi Yoshida was born in the year 1911 in Tokyo, Japan. Toshi was the oldest son of Hiroshi Yoshida. His mother Fujio was also an artist, both have been profiled here already. Even his grandfather was an artist! So he was born into a perfect environment for an artist to thrive.

The artist began to draw at the age of three. Not scribbles but actual realism.

Another trait inherited from his father, was to travel and make paintings on location and of the sights he visited. Sometimes both artists would visit the same place, such as the teenagers trip abroad with his father to the county of India.

Toshi Yoshida was a famous printmaker and renown for his landscapes and paintings of wildlife.

In this clip we take a closer look at a print of a black panther made by the artist. Also shown are works after his father’s death and his foray into more abstract work:

In this clip a great montage of works by Toshi Yoshida:

In 1980 he opened a printmaking school located in Nagano Prefecture.

Toshi Yoshida passed away in 1995.

Price range information: Most prints priced between $500 and $5,000.

I love the landscapes the most of any works of this artist. His abstract works are very flowing and creative.
