Call for Entries - Learn Wood Cut Printing

Ukiyo-e prints, loved around the world as an iconic part of Japan, are produced via the collaboration of an artist, a carver, and a printer. Hokusai and Hiroshige, among others, were ukiyo-e artists called “eshi,” who were specialists in creating sketches for ukiyo-e prints. The ukiyo-e they created were truly mirrors of the times, reflecting social conditions and historical backgrounds. The Adachi Foundation calls for 21st century ukiyo-e artists that depict "ukiyo” or “the current times.”
