Fu Takenaka

Fu Takenaka (1945 – 2022) was a successful woodblock print artists. She had a background in design, fashion and fabric, and transitioned to woodblock printing later in life. Her favorite themes were temples in and around Kyoto and owls. She depicted these in a dreamlike style, very distinct from other Japanese woodblock print artists.

Fu Takenaka collaborated with the Kyoto based woodblock print publisher Unsodo, but designed, carved and printed the works herself, from start to finish. They were published in limited editions, hand-signed and numbered in pencil. It is hoped that Unsodo will be able to publish new editions of her designs, but so far no posthumous editions have been printed. Below you will find the last of Fu Takenaka’s prints that we have available.
