We are organizing an online exhibition to introduce Tadayoshi NAKABAYASHI and Toshihiko IKEDA, two Japanese copperplate print artists.

Tadayoshi NAKABAYASHI is recognized as a leader in copperplate engraving in Japan , and his works are housed in many museums both in Japan and abroad, including major museums in Japan.
He is currently a professor emeritus at Tokyo University of the Arts, and has also been awarded the Medal with Purple Ribbon.
Additionally, NAKABAYASHI has nurtured numerous young talents as an educator.

Toshihiko IKEDA, a rising star in the field of copperplate printmaking, seeks to depict the “limits of humanity” through remarkably intricate stippling.
And IKEDA is also the last disciple of NAKABAYASHI.

Through this mentor-disciple exhibition, we hope you will enjoy the beauty and intricacies of the Japanese copperplate printmaking field.
