Item details

Tetsuya Noda [Japanese 1940]

Artist, print maker and teacher. He is widely considered to be Japan’s most important living print-artist, and one of the most successful contemporary print artist in the world.He is a professor emeritus of the Tokyo University of the Arts Noda is most well-known for his visual autobiographical works done as a series of woodblock, print, and silkscreened diary entries that capture moments in daily life. His innovative method of printmaking involves photographs scanned through a mimeograph machine and then printed the images over the area previously printed by traditional woodblock print techniques onto the Japanese paper. Although this mixed-media technique is quite prosaic today, Noda was the first artist to initiate this breakthrough.
