About

Artist Biography: Mabuchi Toru was born in 1920 in Tokyo as the son of a woodblock engraver and artist. His father was his first teacher. Later he entered the Tokyo University of Fine Arts and became a student of the sosaku hanga artist Unichi Hiratsuka. Mabuchi Toru graduated from Tokyo University in 1941 at the beginning of the Pacific War. After the war Mabuchi Toru became a full-time artist. Favorite themes of the artist are landscapes, still lifes and pottery.Among the artists of the sosaku hanga art movement, he is rather unique due to a strange technique that he had developed himself. The website of the Bristish Museum describes it as follows:"By this time he had developed a unique way of printing which is close to Pointillisme. He cuts up very thin wood into small pieces which he then glues to his block in a mosaic-like pattern. A large number of these may go to make one print. His production is therefore rather small." Mabuchi Toru died in 1994.
