Welcome to our Ukiyo-e collection.
You can read a wee bit on this page about this art form but if you want to know more click this link.
If you want to see more work by any of these artists click on the “artist image” (in the section under artists entitled Ukiyo-e : Pictures of the Floating World) and you will find a link to their individual collection.
I have been fascinated with this wonderful period of Japanese Art since the late 1970s. There is an interesting story about how this fascination with Ukiyo-e influenced the future direction of my life which I have written about in this blogpost.
The prints we offer are not the originals. You can still find some originals online but our purpose is to simply make this beautiful, influential art form more available to anyone who shares our love for the elegant and sometimes exotic translation of life in Japan in the 18th and 19th centuries.
We offer several formats (find our more here) but essentially you can purchase prints on archival paper or cotton canvas which we can send to you anywhere in the world rolled. If you live in Australia we offer the prints framed or stretched and framed on canvas. Delivery can be organised for a fee. It would be far too expensive to send framed prints internationally.
Artists we feature include John Martono, Paitoon Jumee, Pongsak, Kitti Narod, Cheryl Petersen and other featured Tusk Gallery artists plus a huge selection of Japanese Ukiyo-e prints …. What we are going for is a fresh range of art prints featuring the artwork of professional artists as well as ranges which include photography, landscapes, children’s art, abstract, portraits, animals and a huge selection of Japanese Ukiyo-e prints printed on archival paper (with white borders) or acid free cotton canvas.
Our prints are printed on canvas and paper. They are normally sold framed but also supply them as prints on canvas and archival paper.
Glass finished framed prints are printed on 200 GSM paper on clay coated foam using solvent UV curable ink, framed are 100% hardwood timber frames.
Canvas prints are printed on 100 GSM acid free cotton canvas and framed in 100% hardwood timber canvas floater frame which is 60mm deep.
As well as publishing prints by Tusk Gallery artists we are keen to always be on the lookout for art that is not all that commonplace, for example, our extensive range of Ukiyo-e Japanese Art Prints. There has been so much amazing art created during the 20th and 21st Century and that is what you will find in The Artscope Collection
