Munakata and The Disciples of Buddha

Munakata and The Disciples of Buddha Ronin Contemporary View Works

Internationally revered as Japan's greatest modern print artist, Shiko Munakata (1903-1975) is renowned for the powerful spirit of his work. Shiko Munakata’s woodblock prints are known for their expressive lines and evocative use of monochrome. Active in both the Sosaku Hanga (Creative Print) and the Mingei (Folk Art) movements, he remained independent, incorporating each ideology to create his own distinct style. Through his spiritual connection to Zen philosophy, Munakata’s Buddhist artworks extend a visceral link to the Buddhist origins of the woodblock print.
