Fukami, Gashu (1953 - Present)

Fukuoka-based woodblock print artist Gashu Fukami is well known for his bold and colorful approach towards printmaking and his ability to bring an element of excitement to even the most ordinary subjects. Nowhere is his unique style better expressed than in his prints of cats, birds, horses, and other creatures. At times abstract or humorous, these colorful Japanese artworks will delight any collector who enjoys a boldness of style and a spark of wit.

Raised in Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu, Gashu Fukami attended Doshisha University in Kyoto, graduating in 1975. During his time in school he discovered the works of Umetaro Azechi and Takeji Asano. These artists inspired Gashu to pursue woodblock printing in 1977. The following year he traveled to the United States to study at Kaji Aso Studio in Boston. Gashu returned to Kyoto in 1983, holding his first solo show in 1988. By 1997, he had moved to Nagasaki, before settling in Fukuoka in 1999. Gashu has held multiple solo shows in Japan, as well as at Ronin Gallery in New York. Self-carved and self-printed, his colorful works carry the spirit of Sosaku Hanga into contemporary printmaking.
