Featured Artwork

Paul Binnie is a Scottish-born artist (1967). His work directly references the work of Ukiyo-e print masters but with a unique, contemporary twist. While his image style references shin-hanga artists of the early 20th century, he is a master craftsman of the complete woodblock process, carving and editioning his prints himself in the sosaku-hanga fashion. 

The series, A Hundred Shades of Ink of Edo, completed in 2015, depicts nude figures with tattoo designs from the work of Hokusai and Hiroshige.
