The art of Sadao Watanabe is completely devoted to Christian themes from the Bible. As a young man he converted to Christianity. His art prints are a mix of Christian themes and traditional Japanese folk art. And Sadao Watanabe tells the story of the Bible in a Japanese environment with Jesus Christ clad in a kimono, eating sushi instead of bread and drinking sake instead of wine.
