Sosaku-hanga is the Japanese phrase meaning creative print, and this exhibition features works by some of the country’s leading printmakers from 1950 to the present day. Contemporary artists are still inspired by the centuries-old technique and imagery of printmaking – while also experimenting with new and progressive technologies and methods.

With their bold colours and subtle textures, the works on display show how the tradition is evolving. Artists including Kiyoshi Saito and Kawana Kauro developed new processes, while the likes of Masami Tersoka have crossed genres and become well known outside Japan.
