Woodblock prints by a young artist, based on his time in Machida

The third “Imprint Machida” event, in which young artists visit Machida and present work inspired by their experience, features woodblock prints by Tanaka Sho. A styrax japonica tree in Serigaya Park beside the museum, which had been marked for felling as part of redevelopment plans, was instead carefully dug up from the root by a specialist. Tanaka used the tree to make woodblocks, engraved with images based on his experiences in Machida. In addition to these, the exhibition also features Tanaka’s earlier work. Around 150 pieces are on display, including works inspired by the history of printing and coffee.
