Artist Biography

Tokushi Katsuhira (1904-1971) was born in Akita, Japan, into a family of farmers and papermakers. Katsuhira carved dolls but had never witnessed another artist at work until he took a short woodcarving course in 1928. He began exhibiting his sosaku-hanga prints, focused on the principle of the artist as the sole creator motivated by a desire for self-expression, in 1928 with Nihon Sosaku-Hanga Kyokai.

His work predominantly depicts everyday life and customs in Akita, including festivals and the seasonal rhythm of rural life. His prints are unique in their accomplished directness and the quality of carving.
