Yōkai: Ghosts, Spirits and Demons

Yōkai: Ghosts, Spirits and Demons View Works

Japanese myths brim with ghosts and demons, weird creatures and strange apparitions, animals with magical powers and mischievous spirits; mysterious realms where humans and supernatural creatures live side by side. Ukiyo-e artists, such as masters of the bizarre, Kuniyoshi and Yoshitoshi, both represented here in our collection, were fascinated by these legends and portray Japanese demon and ghost art with both humor and horror. Some scenes will make you laugh, while others will haunt you for days. Ronin Gallery is pleased to present this fantastic selection of modern and traditional Japanese woodblock prints that will stir your imagination and transport you to the fantastical world of ghosts, demons and the bizarre.
