Nishimura Ryo was born in Kyoto and studied at Kyoto Seika Univ. and Kyoto City Univ. of Arts. As luck would have it, his work was being presented in the CWAJ’s 2017 exhibition where it swept the entire staff (and owner) of The Tolman Collection off our feet. We immediately captured his imagination and have been able to place hundreds of pieces of his drypoint at several prestigious collections such as Harvard University and LACMA. Our gallery always seeks, and usually finds the best.
