A place to learn more about Hokusai

By | April 30, 2016

Although I’m very much into many facets of Japanese culture, one thing I need to spend some more time researching is some of the classic artists of Japan. Katsushika Hokusai (often just called ‘Hokusai’) is one of the most famous artists from the Edo period. It’s very likely you’ve come across his famous print “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”, which is a good display of his unique style.

I was happy to come across the Katsushika Hokusai site on Artsy the other day, which contains a detailed bio, over 85 of his works, exclusive articles, and even up-to-date Hokusai exhibition listings. If you look around the site you can find other nice gems, such as a list of suggested contemporary artists to help you continue in your Japanese art studies.

If you are a fan of Hokusai, or just want to learn more about traditional Japanese art, this is a good place to start.
