Yuasa, Katsutoshi (1978 - Present)

Born in Tokyo in 1978, Katsutoshi Yuasa is a contemporary woodblock print artist. His work presents a conversation between the contemporaneity of photography and the tradition of woodblock printmaking. Each Yuasa woodblock print begins with his own digital photographs, which he then reinterprets as woodblock prints. In his words, the camera creates “fictional two-dimensional information in the surface…I have decided to use the woodcut technique as a way of adapting the subjective perception to the objective fiction.” This interplay between the emotional and the factual is neither reality nor fiction: Yuasa creates a “neutral space…in a new dimension.”


Yuasa a received BA in Fine Arts from Musashino Art University in 2002, where he studied painting and printmaking. He continued his study of printmaking in London, earning a MFA from the Royal College of Art in 2005. From MI-LAB to Musashino Art University, Yuasa has taught, lectured and led workshops throughout Europe and Asia. He has received numerous awards and scholarships, most recently, Grand Prize at the 2015 CWAJ 60th Anniversary Print Show. His work is actively exhibited in solo and group shows worldwide and resides in the permanent collections of prestigious institutions such as the Victoria & Albert Museum.
