Rokushū was a sculptor and woodblock printmaker active in the 1960s and 1970s. During this period he made more than forty bird prints. Ten examples are shown in this gallery. Click on a picture to enlarge it. Rokushū’s favorite bird subject was the gull which he saw during his walks on the beach near his seaside home. The gulls in prints 1-9 are hardly recognizable because neither their shapes nor colors are true-to-life. Any additional objects appearing in the pictures were similarly abstracted and they were often even more difficult to identify. To see more prints by Rokushū click here.
