Artist of the moment…….Mabuchi Toru

 

Mabuchi Toru was a wonderful Japanese printmaker born in Tokyo, Japan in they 1920. Toru is renowned for his work with floral imagery.

The artist’s father was an engraver and also one of the first artists to be recognized for his work with the airbrush. His father also wanted him to become an artist and Toru attended the Tokyo School of Fine Arts.

Toru was also a professor at Hiroshima University.

What I enjoy most about the artist is his technique of breaking down his wood block prints to many thin and small pieces that are made to resemble a mosaic work of art.

Mabuchi Toru passed away in 1994.
