I chose Plum Orchard in Kameido at the same time as the Great Wave, at the very beginning of my 100 Views of Ukiyo-e project. I knew I had to do at least those two views. Plum Orchard is something I admired through the works of other authors, through Van Gogh´s interpretation Flowering Plum Tree, and I had this feeling that I understood the qualities that Van Gogh saw in this Hiroshige´s work.

Tradition of the Floating World – Artist & Printshop, Muha @ BlackBOX is an example of how some traditions can survive through time and gain root from one culture and epoch into another one. Ukiyo-e, pictures of the floating world, are known through prints and reprints from the 17th century till now. In Japan, during Edo period, ukiyo-e prints served as mass produced posters from commoners. Usually artists would paint for print shop and then print shop would make multiple copies of the work. There was usually mutual understanding or contract between artist and the owner of the print shop, leading to the lifetime relationship.

    Modern and somewhat European interpretation of Ukiyo-e by Muha. Beautiful paiting of Plum Orchard. He obviously got inspiration from a typical early spring scenary in Japan, but interestingly it could also be in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I especially like the striking orange color of the sky.
