Refined lithographs by Akihiro MISAKI




The Tolman Collection is delighted to welcome a brand-new star to the list of lithographers: Akihiro Misaki (b.1987, Tokyo.) His career will be a great one as he has graduated from Geidai (Tokyo University of the Arts) one of the best art schools in Japan. 

Misaki focuses on the depth of the color black by printing only in monotone. When you look at his work, you find a reflection of light or shadow from just the black ink. His prints (which are lithographs) also resemble pencil drawings. To create these subtle and perfect works, he spends countless hours meticulously drawing the images on an aluminum plate. 

He's now teaching art at a junior high school and seldom can find enough time to produce larger editions, so his edition numbers are extremely limited, as few as or less than 9. Besides the rarity, there are no #4 existing in his editions as the artist skips this number which is unlucky in Japan. It means there are always one fewer than the shown number. 

As for pricing, prints start from JPY 14,300 to JPY 44,000. Those collectors who want to support this young and talented artist should decide sooner rather than later . We are looking forward to your inquiries.
