ABOUT GIHACHIRO OKUYAMA

Okuyama began his career in the late 1920s designing woodblock prints for commercial purposes. His work included posters and advertisements for the Japan Wool Company and Nikka Whiskey. In 1931, he founded the Tokyo Advertisement Art Association, later renamed the Tokyo Advertising Creator's Club. Okuyama's interests were not limited to the commercial aspects of printmaking. From 1923 to 1933, he studied with Ishii Kendo, learning about the traditions of Japanese printmaking and ukiyo-e. In 1932, he was one of a number of artists who contributed to the print series "One Hundred Views of Great Tokyo", published by Nihon Fukei Hangakai.

Early in his career, Okuyama's prints were published by the Kyoto Hanga-in, but by 1946 he had established a publishing firm called the Japan Print Institute, which published his woodblock prints along with reproductions of ukiyo-e artists. In 1954, Okuyama established his own publishing studio called the Okuyama Hanga Kobo, where he designed  and published his own landscape prints. During the late 1950's, Okuyama made a series of woodblock prints based on well-known European paintings, several of which were by Vincent Van Gogh. These prints were signed by Okuyama in English.
