Artist Biography:
Yukio Katsuda was born in Kyoto in 1941 and since the 1960s has been active in the medium of serigraph (silk screens). His prints usually carry no title other than a number that represents the chronological order of his works, however, the verso of framed prints sometimes carry official paper notes with conventional titles in Japanese. His prints are often heavily inked (a spectacular example is Number 77, Sunflower), and thus have a unique, near-3D appearance; it is this feature that first drew me to Katsuda's works. His major works cover natural themes such as birds (mostly owls), flowers and plants, and landscapes.
