Adachi Showroom

Special display of Lee Ufan’s three woodcut prints

Lee Ufan is an artist who led one of the most important movements in post-war Japanese art, Mono-ha (the “School of Things”) and has gained worldwide acclaim for his works. Now Adachi completed Mr. Ufan’s three woodcut prints under close supervision by the artist. They are completed as a masterpiece created by the carvers and printers who inherit the Japanese traditional woodcut printing techniques. Three woodcut prints, “Dialogue 1”, “Dialogue 2” and “Dialogue 3” will be displayed at the Tokyo showroom of the Adachi Foundation. Please come to see the light and brilliant colors and the energy of traditional woodcut prints produced by using a baren rubbing pad to rub water-based pigments into the fibers of the washi paper. Details >>

At the Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints Showroom, visitors can view the works on display. There are also works for sale, which you can purchase and take home with you. Credit card payments are accepted.
(Please note that framed pieces and some other products may not be taken home on the same day.)

The brilliant colors and soft textures of woodblock prints cannot be fully conveyed on a computer screen or a catalog. At the Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints Showroom in Mejiro, Tokyo, visitors can enjoy a display of recommended works selected especially for the season. In addition, there is a permanent exhibition of materials and tools involved in the production of woodcut prints. Here, visitors can actually take woodcut prints in their hand and feel their appeal that is different from any other type of print or printing method. Up to now, the Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints has produced reproductions of some 1,200 works of Ukiyo-e. The display at the showroom includes works that could not be included on the website. Please feel free to visit and see the selection up close.
