Kaoru Saito

Something a bit more traditional on the site today: mezzotint prints by Japanese artist Kaoru Saito. I came across his works some years ago and my travels in Japan are a perfect excuse to share some of his beauties on the blog! Born in Kanagawa prefecture in 1931, Kaoru Saito is a member of Shunyo-kai, which is a Japanese association of printmakers. He created countless stunning portraits in his lifetime and currently resides in Hayama, Japan.

Kaoru Saito does not have a website but you can find some more information about the artist here.
