In Japan, May 5 is known as Children’s Day (Kodomo no hi) – a day for families to wish health, strength and happiness upon their youngest generation. During this national holiday, koinobori (cloth carp streamers), flutter in the wind, children snack on mochi wrapped in oak leaves, and communities host kid-centric events. This year, Ronin Gallery celebrates Children’s Day with a collection of prints from Shuntei’s Children Games. From scenes of cat’s cradle to hand ball, this series captures the world of play. Shuntei brings each pastime to life through his delicate figures and bright kimono. All the prints are embellished with either with mica, metallic pigments, burnishing, or embossing.
