Kimono – Kintaro – Diptych
Kintaro - translated as “Golden Boy” - is a folklore boy known for his strength and friendship with animals. His image has appeared throughout the centuries in all forms of art from ukiyo-e to manga.
Here, Katsunori Hamanishi utilises Kintaro’s image of riding on a carp, a symbol of luck and fortune, as a motif on a hanging kimono. The kimono in the back is detailed with images of traditional children’s toys. The colours in the kimonos and the red hanging strings beautifully contrast against the velvety black background of the mezzotint technique.
In collaboration with Hanga Ten, this is part of a series of prints celebrating the works of contemporary Japanese printmakers.
