About the artist

Raised in Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu, Gashu attended Doshisha University in Kyoto, graduating in 1975. During school he discovered the works of Umetaro Azechi and Takeji Asano. These artists inspired Gashu to pursue woodblock printing in 1977, before traveling to the United States in 1978 to study at Kaji Aso Studio in Boston. He 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 the Ronin Gallery in New York. Self-carved and self-printed, his works carry the spirit of sosaku hanga into the contemporary. Striking yet whimsical, Gashu’s woodblock prints make the familiar look uncanny, breathing exuberance into the everyday.
