Haku Maki (1924 2000) was a Japanese artist of the second half of the 20th century. He first made his name and his living by producing prints featuring Chinese characters (kanji).
His life as an artist dates from the mid-1950s, when the earliest known Maki prints began appearing. Haku Maki was born in Aso-machi in Ibaraki Prefecture in 1924, as Maejima Tadaaki. In the late 1950s, he selected the name Haku Maki to show his humility and self-styled confusion.
Maki produced about 2000 different images. This makes him one of the most prolific Japanese print makers of his day. This print is a good example of his unique printing technique using cement to give a strong embossed texture.This and his use of Chinese characters, or kanji as a central motif are what he first became known for. Print is basically framed with a black mat and a black wooden bamboo frame. This is a great Haku Maki print. The item "Haku Maki poem 71-41. Wookblock" is in sale since Monday, September 21, 2020.
