Katsushika Hokusai (1760 - 1849) was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. He is best known for his woodblock print series "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji" which includes the famous "The Great Wave off Kanagawa". In 1811 Hokusai changed his name to Taito and entered the period in which he created the Hokusai Manga, or art manuals.These served as a convenient way to make money and attract more students. They were the inspiration for modern manga comics.
Our fine art prints are inspired by antique illustrations. We make them with superb pigmented inks and heavyweight German fine art paper made from 100% cotton and spring water.
