About the artist

Masao Ido was born in 1945 in Beipiao in Northeastern China. After his family returned to their hometown of Kyoto in 1960, he began his artistic career under Koho Yoshida, working with dyes, before shifting to contemporary woodblock prints in 1972. Under the tutelage of Shigechika Ohtsubo, Masao Ido honed his distinct woodblock print style. His work captures a sense of tranquility, whether in the sloping eaves of old houses or lush gardens. Masao Ido has exhibited his work worldwide. His contemporary woodblock prints can be found in numerous permanent collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
