The woodcuts of Ray Morimura

Ray Morimura is a Tokyo-born artist specialising in beautiful woodcut prints. His work primarily features landscapes, often with Japanese buildings and structures – such as temples, bridges or torii gates.

He has a slightly different approach to his art than your typical landscape artist, focussing on geometric shapes, repeated patterns, distinct colours (mostly blues, greys, pale greens and red) and textures. So, rather than capturing a like-for-like copy of a particular landscape, he instead creates stunning interpretations of iconic Japanese scenes.
