About the artist

Born in Asomachi, Ibaraki prefecture, in 1924, Haku Maki 巻 白 served in the WWII before becoming a high school teacher in 1950. Around this time he began to produce his mixed media-prints. While his process began with carving a woodblock, he would the add cement around the carved areas. Once the cement had dried, he would carve over his original lines. This process produced the deep embossing so characteristic of his works. In terms of subject matter, Maki explored abstracted Chinese characters, though also ceramics and persimmons later in life. After 1960, he began to add spots of color to his compositions. A master of modern Japanese abstract printmaking, Maki's work can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the British Museum.
