As of today, I add another member to my group of Katazome heroes. Along with Serizawa Keisuke and Inagaki Toshijiro I add Nishijima Takeshi.
I had seen Nishijima's work before but today looking at his works again today I was blown away. He is well known for his colourful depictions of mountains.
His artworks also have a real "katazome-feel" to them. Even though they are large panel works and kind of resemble silkscreened fabric, when you look up close he has all kinds of Katazome touches. Hard to explain...
One more image and I will stop this babble.
Its Kurama! About 15 minutes north of me on the train in north Kyoto.
