Japanese people like fish - on their plates as well as on their walls as images of fine art. Contemporary Japanese printmaker Kunio Kaneko, born 1949, self-published a number of beautiful woodblock prints with fish images.
First Publication: September 2009
Latest Update: May 2013
The artist is a regular participant of the prestigious annual CWAJ Print Shows. In 2007 it was his 21st year.
Viewing fish is relax for your soul. Fish prints by Kunio Kaneko have the same effect as fish in an aquarium. But Kunio Kaneko's woodblock prints need less space, no food and cost less.
These prints are made with elaborate techniques like fine graduation ("bokashi" in Japanese), the use of metallic pigments and a perfect rendering. It is hard to believe that these images were made in woodblock technique. Kunio Kaneko has a sense for perfection!
We have never met the artist in person. But judging from the titles used for his fish prints like "Go", "Run Run Run" or "Miss Sunshine" he must be quite a whimsical guy.
