Homage to Hokusai

This print is a homage to one of my favourite artists, Hokusai, for two reasons. The first reason is the choice of motifs that I have created which echoes some really beautiful natural patterns by Hokusai: the clouds, the branches in bloom, the bushes in flower, the birds and the geometrical background. The second is the method I have followed to create this design. Hokusai was a master and revolutionary printmaker. With this in mind and aid by modern technologies I have somehow recreated a printmaking approach to this print. My method consisted in drawing different sheets of original ink drawings that later on will form a single motif. This can be appreciated on the studio photograph of my ink drawings. For example I created the branches with four drawings: the block colour, the bark pattern, the flowers and the leaves. I love to express patterns of nature in art, it is a natural repetition with variation, it is a code of nature that is embedded in the DNA of every living being.

Detail of print.
Photograph of print base drawings. I make these formats with calligraphic brushes, fine-line markers, and other tools; in watercolour, ink and charcoal and on separate sheets of A3 size marker paper. These are scanned and form the main line work and patterns in the final print.
