||First Love No. 31 - The First Star|
||Ryusei Okamoto born 1949|
||From the series "First Love" "Ichiban Boshi" (The First Star). |
Ryusei often recited the famous poem about the first love by the poet Shimazaki Toson while he carved the wood blocks for the series, "First Love".
Ryusei was very attracted to the neat and clean beauties by KIKUCHI Keigetsu, the renowned Nihon-ga master. When he encountered Keigetsu's beauty for the first time about 20 years ago, he felt as if she was telling him, "Do not linger here long, go back to your work soon". Ever since Ryusei has been working steadily to perfect his art works.

||Ryusei Okamoto is in my view one of the best Japanese printmakers of his generation. His teacher, Toshi Yoshida, once said about his student: "Mr. Yoshimi Okamoto is unique, a fact which I would like the world to know.".|
