The Great Wave off Kanagawa after Hokusai

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)


It´s hard to say anything new about the Great Wave. For centuries it has been inspiration and foundation for new or built on artworks by both, fine or applied arts artist. I don´t ever get tired of it, of its original Ukiyo-e print or any other media form. I am thrilled to find the Great Wave hidden in some advertisement or poster or graffiti.

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.


Print based on my painting
from the series 100 Views of Ukiyo-e.

    Obviously inspired by Hokusai’s masterpiece The Great Wave off Kanagawa. Beautiful contrast between blue waves and red sky, with Mount Fuji in the background.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5


    Oduševljena kupljenim printom, zauzet će počasno mjesto na zidu čim stigne sa uokviravanja! 🙂
