SANO, SEIJI

SEIJI SANO was born in Iwata in Shizuoka Prefecture in 1959. He moved to Kyoto in 1978 and studied with textile designer Sano Takeshi. In 1984 he began studying woodblock printing with Ido Masao, one of Japan’s top contemporary artists.

Sano’s beautiful woodblock landscapes focus on the natural beauty of the countryside around Kyoto and display an instinctive feel for colour and form that is very rare among the artists of his era.
All of his fabulous woodblock scenes are hand signed, dated, titled and numbered limited editions of mostly small amounts often only up to 100 but some extra fine prints up to 300.

He is one of today’s successful artists who live and work in Kyoto and his favorite subject is the beauty of old Japan. Sano Seiji combines the woodblock technique and romantic subjects in a masterly way. The results are images with a touch of impressionism.
