Biography:

Tomikichiro Tokuriki (1902-1999)

Tokuriki was born into a family of Kyoto artists that can trace their history back to 1596. He studied at Kyoto School of Arts and Crafts, followed by studies at Kyoto City Specialist School of Painting in 1924 for a three year s. In 1928 he studied Nihonga (Japanese style) painting under Tsuchida Bakusen (1887-1936) and Yamamoto Shunkyo (1871-1933).

Most of his traditional prints (shin hanga style) were printed and published by three Kyoto publishing houses: Uchida Wood Block Printing Company (Uchida

Tokuriki was a prolific print artist throughout his life and was active in promoting print making and teaching until he was into his 90s.
