Akira KUROSAKI

Born 1937 in Dalian, Manchuria, Kurosaki attended Kyoto Institute of Technology. Inspired by traditional “nishiki-e” (ukiyo-e) prints, he started to produce woodblock prints in 1965. In 1967, Kurosaki received the Newcomer Award of the Kokugakai Association. He won the 3rd Prize of the 14th Shell Art Award of 1970 and the Prize of the Minister of Education at the Tokyo International Print Biennale. Kurosaki’s reputation further rose when he was awarded at the 3rd Krakow International Print Biennale and his works were acquired by the Warsaw National Museum of Art.

Using with a distinctive black tone as a base for his multi-colored prints, Kurosaki’s work has been recognized internationally, allowing him not only to exhibit in Europe and the United States, but also in China and South Korea. Kurosaki has furthermore authored a variety of books on printmaking, and holds an appointment as a professor at Kyoto Seika University.
