Horiyoshi III is Japan’s tebori (tattoo) master without peer, whose work is indebted to traditions of apprenticeship, family artisan specialization and skill. This sensitivity to tradition extends beyond his tebori and in recent years, Horiyoshi III has concentrated on traditional Japanese calligraphy prints. Horiyoshi III explains that his work embodies a commitment to three points: shu, to succeed to a tradition, ha, to add new concepts and techniques, and ri, to develop ha further and create one’s own world. This philosophy shines through in this collection of his calligraphy prints presented on shikishi board.
