100 Years of Samiro Yunoki: Trajectory of Creation
Samiro Yunoki is a master of stencil dyeing and a former professor at the Joshibi University of Art and Design. Even at 100, he continues to create art and inspire generations. 100 Years of Samiro Yunoki: Trajectory of Creation is both an exhibition and a book celebrating the artist and his many valuable contributions over the century. Featuring photographs of Yunoki, his work and his atelier, this book traces his life and achievements. It introduces the signature themes of Yunoki's oeuvre and looks back over a colorful century of life and art while offering insights into his appeal, which remains ever vibrant to this day.
Born in 1922, Yunoki apprenticed under Keisuke Serizawa after being inspired by the Folk Art Movement. He uses vivid colours and rich patterns in his fabrics, but also creates lithographs, copperplate paintings, glass paintings, and picture books.
Please note that the text of this book is entirely in Japanese. However, the illustrations are so rich and full of inspiration that it is worth owning even without the language fluency.
