"The Beast Known as Kotobuki -bird-" 2017

Woodblock print

This piece was inspired by “A Beast called Kotobuki” by Shigemitsu Enrousai, an ukiyo-e artist from the late Edo period.The modern world is overflowing with countless images, and therefore it is extremely difficult to come up with an entirely novel idea. However, this proliferation of images gives rise to opportunities to combine existing images to form new ones, as exemplified by “A Beast called Kotobuki”.
