Mana Aki :Born in 1960 in Kochi Prefecture on the island of Shikoku, She didn’t venture far from home for university, choosing to study locally. Her plans were to become a high school art teacher. Long inspired by the woodblocks of ISOMI Teruo, when she learned that he would be teaching a class in Tokyo, she traveled to the metropolis to study with him. After completing the course, she chose to return to the rural environment of Kochi and has dedicated herself to promoting one of the local handicrafts by using the local handmade paper, Tosa washi. Her paper’s delicacy contrasts with the bold energy of her lines. In this case very fine lines.
The work is in mint condition.
