Printmaking is awesome. You start off with a printing slab, which you cut to your desires. You then ink the block, and then transfer that ink onto the paper. This allows for the reproduction of original art pieces, and cutting the printing slab differently allows for many different types of textures inaccessible from other art styles. That made it revolutionary, and it's been changed and updated repeatedly throughout history.
This is The Great Wave of Kanagawa by Hokusai. This has always been one of my favorite art pieces, and I have it hanging on my bedroom wall. With interesting textures and a sharp contrast of the waves and the sky, it's obvious why this print is so captivating. I wonder how Hokusai added so many different colors on a woodblock print. What if it were just a black-and-white print?
