“I’m a brush of the artists”
In the 1980s, many well-known artists came down to Shiun-Do, Tadashi TODA’s atelier located in the Kita ward in Kyoto. He joined the Japanese Woodcut print Project incubated by Crown Point Press Inc., since 1982. His unique genius, free of stereotypes and grounded in solid technique, was highly trusted. Until Tadashi passed away in 2000, he collaborated with many artists including Francesco Clemente and Alex Katz and made a wealth of woodblock prints. In this exhibition, we show Tadashi TODA’s works, evaluated by artists the world over, and introduce his prominent print skills.
Born in Kyoto in 1936. Tadashi started to study printing at 15 years old under his father, who was a woodblock printer especially focused on the traditional wood print-with-watercolour style known as Ukiyoe.
