Seiichi Hiroshima is a master printmaker and print artist living and working in Tokyo, Japan. He has printed for Rick Bartow and others. For his own work, Hiroshima primarily uses the color mezzotint process, using a rocker to create a rich textured surface from which he burnishes and scrapes his image, producing a velvety quality. The poem below was wrriten by the artist about his inspiration.
Sunny spot on one winter afternoon.
Fragrant breeze on one spring evening.
Cool wind at one summer dawn.
Evening glow on one autumn day.
Every modest moment is my childhood treasure.
