About the artist
Ryota Saito, born 1991.
When you see his work, you can hardly understand that this is a woodblock print. It looks more like an etching work, with all the fine lines.
Generally woodblock designers/carvers use vertical cutting wood for carving the block,
Vertical cutting wood is soft and easy to carve. (you cut parallel to the nerf of the wood.
But Mr.Saito uses `round slices of wood`, this wood is very hard (high density) You cut on top of the nerf. This way he can carve very precise.
The work is in mint condition.
Right from the gallery of the artist/publisher.
