About Haku Maki
With the stylized lines and aesthetic of Japan, and the bold simplicity of an independent artistic spirit, Haku Maki prints make stunning works of art to view in a home or business. The work of this Japanese artist falls within the sosaku hanga print movement of the 20fh century. This movement differs from traditional printmaking in that the process is entirely self-driven by the artist. Whereas the more traditional shin hanga printmakers work collaboratively with a team of artists, sosaku hanga artists like Haku Maki work independently, inspired by an individual need for expression. In other words, sosaku-hanga focuses on art, while the shin hanga focuses on process and production. Haku Maki's most well loved prints are graphic improvisations on Japanese characters. The characters are not drawn traditionally, but rather distorted in order to create the most pleasing visual layout. The contrast between the bold, black strokes of the characters and the white backdrop make Haku Maki's prints real statement pieces in any space.
