Woodblock Print - Large size

The following prints are the masterpeace which I won a prize from the work which I appled since 2013 for the OHGEN art group exhibition.

I use Shina-beniya which means plywood of Tilia Japonica (Japanese Lime). The Shina wood is soft and easy to curve so that most of Japanese woodblock print artist uses Shina-beniya.
For these large size prints I use 60X90cm Shina-beniya which thicknes is 9mm.
Use ink specially prepaired for wood block printing and use 100% kozo washi.
