Stunning rare print from a well-known contemporary Japanese artist and the head of Japan Print Association (JPA). His medium is not the traditional woodblock, but copperplates.

Yukio FUKAZAWA 深沢幸雄  1924-2017 
Yukio Fukazawa was born in 1924 in Yamanashi Prefecture. During World War II he was injured in an air attack by US bombers on Tokyo. He kept a life-long disability in walking from this injury. In 1948 Yukio Fukazawa graduated from the Tokyo Art College. He had studied the technique of copper engraving, partly self-taught and partly at the art college. It should remain his favorite medium.

In the 50s and 60s the young contemporary Japanese artist gained the attention of the Japanese art community and later in the 70s of an International audience.

1957 - Prize from Japan Print Association
1958 - Prize from Shunyo-kai Society
1959 - 3rd Prize from Shell art contest
1960 - Price from the Modern Art Museum of Kanagawa Prefecture
1962 - First Price from an Exhibition of Modern Japanese Art
1972 - Price from the Crakow International Print Biennale
In 1963 Fukazawa was invited by the Mexican government to teach copper engraving. During his stay in Mexico he was captured by the ancient civilizations of the Aztec and Maya indios. Under this influence the artist's print style became more colorful.

Yukio Fukazawa prints are characterized by his thrive to express inner feelings and thoughts. Art critics used the expression lyrical prints to describe the works of this great contemporary Japanese artist.
