This intricately carved woodcut print is a stunning remake of the famous work The Great Wave Off Kanagawa by the Japanese artist Hokusai. The carving of the wood is such a detailed process and, with this in consideration, the job requires extreme precision and skill, which this young artist clearly possesses.
Woodcarving is a very suitable art form for the Japanese culture, as the serene and precision-induced process is parallel to the values and lifestyle aspects this elegant culture possesses. As hard as it is, wood carving is an admirable effort with a gorgeous outcome.
Traditional Woodcut Prints of The Adachi Woodcut Prints is currently being exhibited at ICN, a contemporary art gallery based in London that supports works of UK’s emerging young contemporary artists from Asiatic backgrounds.
