Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was born in Edo, Honjo, and began his artistic journey in 1778 when he apprenticed under Katsukawa Shunsho. The following year, he made his debut under the name Shunro, where he created actor portraits, beautiful women, and sumo wrestling illustrations.

At the age of 40, he adopted the name Hokusai and continued to excel in his craft, contributing to illustrated books and other forms of art. He studied techniques from Chinese and Western painting, mastering shading and perspective. His greatest achievement is considered to be the "Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji," a series of landscape prints that are renowned as his masterpiece.

Hokusai's works had a profound impact on Western artists, including Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet. He is celebrated as one of Japan's foremost artists and a key figure who influenced Western art.

Kanagawa-oki Nami Ura (Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji)

When you think of ukiyo-e, many people instantly visualize this iconic image. It's one of Katsushika Hokusai's most famous works. What sets it apart is Hokusai's distinctive and dynamic portrayal of deformed waves. The artwork captures the ferocity of towering waves, the desperate struggle of people clinging to a boat amidst the chaos, and the majestic Mount Fuji in the distance. It's a masterpiece that beautifully encapsulates Hokusai's artistic vision.
