OKUYAMA, GIHACHIRO

GIHACHIRO OKUYAMA was Born on 1907 and Lived until 1981. He studied art under Kasaka Gajin and during the difficult economic times of the 1920s made his living creating commercial designs for posters and advertising labels eventually establishing his own advertising company in 1931. At the same time as making a living in this manner he was very active in both the Sosaka and Shin Hanga Movements and creating woodblocks which were exhibited in within these Associations. In 1946 he established the Japan Print Institute – Nihon Hanga Kenkyusho – and he continued to work as a woodblock artist for most of his life. His prints display a fine and creative style and they are among the rarest of Shin Hanga woodblocks to be found today.
