ARTIST: TERUHIDE KATO
Kato was born in 1936 and studied at Kyoto Art College. He enjoyed a successful career as a Kimono Designer in the 1960s and 1970s and at the age of 50 Kato fulfilled his long held dream of becoming a traditional woodblock artist. He gained fame for his contemporary woodblock shin-hanga prints of his native town Kyoto.
