A Contemporary Master – Hajime Namiki was born in 1947 in Tokyo. Although originally trained as a sculptor, he began making wood block prints in 1978. He carves his own blocks and prints each work using traditional methods. These beautiful prints are printed on a gold or silver leaf laid over Torinoko paper. Namiki also uses oil-based paints rather than the more common use of watercolors.
Namiki’s most famous and striking subjects are his nature scenes. Fascinated by trees, he has masterfully captured their majesty and beauty in a modern style with traditional methods. Namiki’s prints were released in strictly limited editions and are numbered in pencil in the margins. Namiki signs, titles, numbers, and dates them in pencil.

Never been framed.
beautiful high quality golden background. Cherry tree in full blossom. The Sakura (blossom) comes in different colors of pink, what gives more dept. His choice for the full gold background, really punches you in the face ! But works perfect.
Will be packed with a lot of care between hardboard plates to prevent any damage in transport.
