■ Japanese painters have newly drawn down as the motif of Kuniyoshi Utagawa's masterpiece "Soma no Furuuchi".

 

 

Ukiyo -e artist Ukagawa Kuniyoshi, who is led by the late Edo period, is called a "strange painter" and is extremely popular in modern times. His masterpiece, "Soma no Furuuchi," (1845-46), depicts the vassal of Gen Yorinobu, Taro Oukukun, is described in the extermination of the skull. It is one of the most popular Ukiyo -e in Japan. As a motif that conveys the splendor of Ukiyo -e from Japan to the world"Soma's back back"I focused on the similarity of "Attack on Titan" and have been planning.

 

 

 

■ Ukiyo -e artist: Kuniyoshi Utagawa

 

 

Ukiyo -e artist who played an active part from the late Edo period to the end of the Tokugawa period. Kuniyoshi Utagawa (1797-1861) is known as a "strange painter" and "Kuniyoshi of the warrior painting" beyond the long -time loading. Ukiyo -e artist who is popular outside.

■ "Ukiyo -e tree print", a crystal of technology

 

Ukiyo -eki prints start with the design of woodcuts by color based on the design and carved one by one. As you can see, it is a terrible and detailed work, and the effect of only one millimeter on the entire screen has a great impact, and it can be said that it is a long -term discipline of craftsmen to carve it perfectly.

 

 


We continue to engrave all manually, including not only eyes, hair, and shape, but also the title and background that does not appear in the color. Because it uses delicate woodcuts so much, it is missing or damaged in thousands of times, so all ukiyo -e can only be sent out with limited production. 。

 

 

  

After engraving all seven -sided and 14 pages, the work of sliding starts based on traditional paints for each color. This is also a world where craftsmanship requires a craftsmanship where only one millimeter shifts and pressure will occur throughout the screen.

  

 

 Thirty -4 times repeatedly repeated the work of carefully sliding each color on the Japanese paper created by the National Treasure. As "painters", "sculptors", and "slurpers" play their roles perfectly, one of the Attack Giants Ukiyo Eki will be created.

 

 

 

 

■ Size that maximizes the charm of the work

 

This time, when producing a valuable work of 300 pieces of the first edition of the world, the size of the angle of view is about twice the size of the conventional ukiyo -e (in -house comparison), so that the size and presence are overwhelming. Was inside it inside.

 

 

 

 

A new work created by the technology of Japanese painter Akira Shiozaki, who is also active as a Ukiyo -e painter, and is created by the technology of Noboru Kitamura, a craftsman in Kyoto, and Makoto Nakayama. "Certificate" and "commentary book" that indicate that it was produced by traditional techniques is also included. I hope you can enjoy it.
