Joshua Rome is an American artist who studied and worked in Japan for over 30 years. His woodblock prints are notable for their warm tones and bright flashes of color, blending Western concepts of design with a distinctly Japanese feeling for space. He achieves a mesmerizing sense of depth without sacrificing the purity of line. Rome carves his own blocks and self-prints his designs. His works are sought after by American and Japanese collectors alike and can be found in major museums worldwide, such as the British Museum and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
