About the artist

Toshi Yoshida was born in Tokyo to a family of artists. His father, Hiroshi Yoshida, educated him in art and fostered his interest in landscapes and animals. Despite the influence of Hiroshi, Toshi's style is distinct in its daring color schemes and composition. The subject matter of Toshi’s woodblock prints largely draws upon his travels, which went as far afield as Antarctica. He briefly experimented in abstract painting in the aftermath of his father’s death in 1950, but returned to his more traditional style. Toshi Yoshida's artwork has received great acclaim and can be found in prestigious museums such as Museum of Modern Art, NY and the British Museum.
