Lithographs by Motoda Hisaharu

In conjunction with the exhibition Hiroshige’s City: From Edo to Tokyo, in which his artwork is displayed, the lithography artist Motoda Hisaharu visits the Honolulu Museum of Art School for a week-long residency.

The public is invited to see the artist in action at these times: Feb 8–15, 10am–noon, Honolulu Museum of Art School Print Studio.

During Motoda Hisaharu's residency, I was in charge of assisting him in preparing, processing and printing his aluminum plate lithographs, as well as translate for the public and Motoda-sensei.

Hiroki Morinoue at Honolulu Museum of Art

It was an honor to be able to assist the one and only, Hiroki Morinoue at a private event in Honolulu Museum. The opportunity was given to me by Duncan Dempster from the Honolulu Printmakers. 

Upon his arrival, we started unloading, unpacking and got ready for the demo that evening. Soon after, Hiroki sensei started his printing demo while explaining to me the water based woodblock printing processes. Towards the end of the event, Hiroki sensei needed to rest and catch up with his friends so I took over his zabuton and printed.
