Nishijima, Katsuyuki (1945- )

Born in Yamaguchi prefecture in 1945, Katsuyuki Nishijima studied woodblock printmaking at the studio of the publisher Mikumo in Kyoto from 1964 to 1968 and then worked in stencil printing for cloth dyeing for three years. His main success has been with subjects of traditional houses and landscapes around Kyoto. His choice of colors and forms combined with his choice of subject matter, makes his style unique. Now based in Kyoto, his woodblocks have a number of formats. Larger sizes are usually limited editions of 500, all hand signed, titled and numbered but normally never dated. His major print series are ‘Sixty-Nine Stations of the Kiso Kaido’ and ‘Kyoto Street Scenes’.
