Part 2 of the Jun-Ichiro Sekino Gallery series.

Jun-Ichiro Sekino (1914-1988) is a talented wood-block print artist and a leader of Sosaku Hanga (an important Japanese art movement), whose art has earned its way to many prestigious museums. This slideshow by far does not have all of the people Sekino printed, but hopefully it will give you, the audience, a taste of his art.

Short Biography:
Jun-Ichiro Sekino was born in the city of Aomori. He started studying printmaking at an early age. When he was 22, he even won a prize for an etching. At the age of 25, Sekino moved to Tokyo and studied under Koshiro Onchi. He used traditional Japanese and Western methods. During the Second World War he worked in an ammunition factory, because artist couldn't rely on there work for good profit anymore. After the war, Sekino's art gradually became famous and international museums started collecting his work. In 1963 he taught printmaking at the Oregon State University (USA), and after returning to Japan taught in the Kobe University. His first son, Junpei, is a fractal artist, while his second son, Yousaku, is a woodblock print artist too.
