Fusako Yoshikawa uses traditional Japanese woodblock techniques to create her abstract, bold and dynamic prints, often using multiple wood blocks to make her beautifully composed images.
Northern Print first exhibited Fusako’s work in 1999 as part of a print exchange with printmakers from Nagoya, Japan and Northern Print artists.
Fusako came to Northern Print in 2003 to take part in a residency alongside two other artists from Japan, including Eriko Maki. All three artists created a new body of work inspired by their time at Northern Print on Fish Quay, North Shields which then went on a touring exhibition of galleries in the North of England.
In 2010 Fusako visited Northern Print in its current home in Ouseburn to demonstrate her work to gallery visitors.
Fusako Yoshikawa lives and works in Japan.
